  • The main entrance of the A Level Centre, Eastbourne
  • By the fire bell, Brickwork Tent
  • Main entrance, Oak House
  • The Harlow Sports Centre main reception, Eastbourne

AED’s should be used if you believe a person is not breathing or is breathing abnormally and does not respond when you call or shake them.                                                                             

All of the AED’s are fully automatic and do not require specifically trained personnel to operate them. They ‘talk’ you through the process and will only operate if required, so there is no chance of ‘accidentally’ shocking someone or doing them any harm, but they could save a life if needed.
