Defibrillator Guidelines

The Nottinghamshire Centre has a HeartSine Samaritan PAD 360P (AED) Fully Automatic Defibrillator that is part of our Rally Kit and will be available on every centre rally. The HeartSine Samaritan PAD 360P Fully Automatic Defibrillator is a complete AED solution giving users of all abilities the confidence to act in the event of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). It is a nominated device of the British Heart Foundation. The unit is fitted with adult pads but we also have a set of paediatric pads (stored in a pocket) for use on children or infants up to 8 years old or under 25kg/55lb in weight.


Call 999 and inform the call handler that there is a defibrillator available and follow the instructions given by the emergency services call handler.

The defibrillator is part of the rally kit and must be passed on with the rest of the rally kit.

In the event of the defibrillator, or any other equipment associated with it having been used and/or damaged, please ensure the equipment officer is notified at the earliest opportunity and do not pass the kit on for another rally as checks will be required and new parts may need to be ordered.
