Defib Unit – Locations and FAQ’s



Thank you so much to Chinnor Good Neighbour Scheme for fully funding a new defib unit and cover box, and also financial support from CPC for the second unit, we are now pleased to announce we have two more available defib units in the village:
*** The Inn at Emmington
*** Chilterns Conservation Board (90 Station Road)


Following a residents meeting last night CPC are also so pleased to say that 2 more defib units will follow soon for Henton – 1 at The Peacock and 1 at Upper Farm.
These will be funded by a donation from The Peacock and resident donations – thank you so much.
Once these are fitted and installed we will advise you – watch this space!

Please find below the location of the public accessible 24 hours a day defib units (they are installed on external walls and so available 24 hours a day)
More defib units are in the village (within Chinnor Village Hall, C&PRR, Sanderum House) but the following are the ones CPC maintain and are on an external wall so 24 hour accessible.

***Wheatsheaf public house, Oakley Road
***White's Field Community Hall, Mill Lane
***Chinnor Community Pavilion, Station Road
***Chinnor Village Centre, High Street
*** The Inn at Emmington
*** Chilterns Conservation Board (90 Station Road)


If you need to use the unit you must ring 999.
If a defib unit is required you do not need to know the exact location of the unit. You call 999 and the emergency services will direct you to the closest unit.
Chinnor Community First Responders run regular training sessions as required, but the emergency services talk you through the entire process so don't worry.
The ambulance service will direct you to the nearest unit, give you the access code to open the cupboard and then instruct you fully on usage instructions.
Contact the Chinnor First Responders through the Parish Council office – 01844 353267
These units are a lifesaver – one unit was deployed in White's Field a few months ago and saved a life – please respect these lifesaving units and be aware of the below FAQ:



FAQ Defibrillators
How do I know where the defibrillators are?
Don't worry, the ambulance service control room knows where they are so you don't need to memorise their locations. Ambulance control will ask you if you are on your own or if there are other people present. Follow their instructions, if you are on your own they will tell you to start CPR If there is another person present and a defibrillator is indicated they will be directed to the nearest one and given the code to open the case. However, the decision to send you will be based on the fact that ambulance control will know your location, the location of the defibrillator and the location of the nearest responding resource such as a Community First Responder (who will have a defibrillator with them) an ambulance or rapid response vehicle. Depending on this information and the time and distances involved, ambulance control may suggest you wait for them to arrive.

How do I know how to work the defibrillator?
You don't need to. Once you have open the defibrillator it will tell you exactly what to do (in a very loud voice which can be quite alarming) Just follow its instructions, remember one of you at the incident will still be on the phone to control who will stay with you and give advice and support until help arrives.

If the patient comes round do we still need the ambulance?
Yes the person will still need to go to hospital so keep on the phone to the ambulance service.

Suppose I make a mistake and hurt the patient?
You will not do any harm to the patient. If their heart has stopped and they are not breathing, it can only get better. It is totally the responsibility of the defibrillator to assess for, and deliver the shock to the patient. When the Community First Responder arrives they will ask what happened and assess the situation. The best plan is to follow their instructions as they have a set protocol to follow but your personal expertise and knowledge will be respected and welcomed.

Winter Preparations



CPC has worked hard over the past months to get ready for these wintry conditions!

We now have many more salt bins located in the parish for use during these bad weather conditions, plus extra stock if needed to refill bins.

Please remember the salt in the bins is intended for use on the public highway and pavements only, and that bins have been sited in their locations for a specific reason.

There is no law against people clearing pavements or public spaces. Ministers have repeatedly welcomed "public-spiritedness" and said "common sense" and "benefit of the doubt" should always prevail when considering litigation.

Please help your neighbours and the elderly during these recent icy conditions. Thank you

CPC has spoken numerous times to OCC Winter Services about the service we get - we are very pleased that so far this year our service of gritting has been much improved.

Our Maintenance team work very hard from the early hours of each week day morning during these icy conditions, to get as much of the pavements cleared as possible for the main routes to schools, doctors and shops. Please support them in this work and try to clear some of the pavement outside your house if you can – this will greatly help the process of making our pavements safe to use.

If you know of someone in need during these poor weather conditions please contact CPC by email or phone (answer machine when closed) as we can arrange some assistance.

Alternatively please call the Chinnor Good neighbour Scheme on 01844 353500.


Please see below locations the salt bins are...

Henton –
• 1 at top by layby
• 1 at bottom of road by Peacock entrance

...Emmington –
• 1 by the entrance layby

Chinnor Hill –
• 1 at Hill Top Lane entrance
