Tic Toc Cumbria
TicToc Cumbria is a charity fund to raise awareness of the FREE Heart Start training available to anyone and raising funds for public accessible defibrillator machines in our community.
With local ambulance services stretched the waiting times for assistance in an emergency grows, portable defibrillators can be located in various areas and are accessible to the general public in an emergency. If somebody is in cardiac arrest and a member of the public dials 999 they will be told the location of the nearest defibrillator. Each machine is stored in a secure metal box which can only be opened with a 4 digit code which is held by the ambulance service.
We aim to locate a defibrillator in an cabinet every 0.25 miles across Cumbria and in areas with high footfall.
We would love to collaborate with local businesses that could host a unit, raise funds or become a Guardian of a unit.
