Chatham High Street’s First 24/7 Defibrillator

Arches Local is pleased to announce the installation of Chatham High Street’s first fully accessible, 24/7 publicly available defibrillator.

The initiative was sparked by concerned residents of Pembroke Court in late 2023, who rightly highlighted the critical lack of accessible defibrillators in the area. Their voices were heard, and we took action, partnering with FirstPort and leveraging support from the Department of Health and Social Care’s Defibrillator Scheme to make this project a reality.

Installed this week, the defibrillator is conveniently located for quick access and use by anyone in an emergency. Thank you to all who contributed to this vital project, especially those residents at Pembroke Court who championed the idea.
