Civil Parish Boundary

Parish Defibrillators

Public Access Defibrillators are installed and ready for use in Manthorpe and Toft.

In Case of Emergency - Dial 999 from a landline or 112 from a mobile

The ambulance service will know your location from your mobile and will ask you your geographic position from a landline. They will give you the access code to the cabinet if you can assure them that there is at least one other person with the injured person. Enter the code into the keypad and open the door. Take the defibrillator to the emergency.


The defibrillator requires no training - all the instructions are given by the machine. Do not wait for one of the 'trained' residents to come and assist - TAKE THE INITIATIVE AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS - YOU CANNOT GO WRONG!
