If you’ve got a defibrillator in your workplace, school or local community, register it with us so that we know it’s available to help save lives!
West Midlands Ambulance Service is working in partnership with British Heart Foundation to develop ‘The Circuit’ – the national defibrillator network. This is a ground-breaking national initiative that will give cardiac arrest victims the best chance of survival by linking a national network of defibrillators to every Ambulance Service in the UK.
We were the first ambulance service to go live with it in June 2019.
The Circuit replaces our previous way of logging defibrillators on our 999 system. Defibrillator guardians across the West Midlands register their defibrillators with us via The Circuit, so that we know where it is in an emergency. It’s quick and easy to do – just make sure you have to hand the following details:
- its location and surroundings
- brand, model and serial number
- times when its available
- pads expiry dates
- confirm it is indicating ready
To set up your account on The Circuit, and to register your defibrillator with us, please click here.
This is a voluntary process, requiring guardians to accept the Circuit’s terms and conditions, but most importantly allows us to know where defibrillators are located within the community.
