Originally,the Steyning Area First Responders charity purchased three telephone kiosks from BT that were due to be decommissioned. They are located in the High Street Steyning, by the car park in Bramber and in Hyde Square Upper Beeding.In addition, we have been instrumental in the installation of a further three defibrillators in the Village Hall Ashurst, Steyning Grammar School and the phone kiosk at Wiston Tea Rooms

These have all had special heated cabinets installed to house defibrillators for public use and all sites are now active.

Although the Steyning Area Responders provide as much cover as possible to our community, they cannot always be available which is why we have created these static sites for community defibrillators.

If you suspect someone is having a heart attack, call 999 and the call centre will direct you to the nearest defibrillator and give you the code to unlock it. The unit is fully automated and will talk you through the entire process.
