Defibrillators in North Lincolnshire

To follow any changes to this service, visit the Council Service Updates page.

Defibrillators can be accessed in an emergency throughout North Lincolnshire.

North Lincolnshire Council has fixed defibrillators to outside walls of public buildings, in secondary schools, at leisure centres and in doctors’ surgeries.

The list of publicly accessible defibrillators in North Lincolnshire [PDF, 299Kb] gives details of where our defibrillators have been sited or you can view them on a map.

If someone goes into cardiac arrest, a member of the public can call 999 and be given a code to access the device. The defibrillators themselves will talk the user through the resuscitation process and the emergency services will stay on the phone to give you further guidance while you wait for an ambulance.

If you live in a rural location, or feel that your area would benefit from a defibrillator being sited, or would like more information, please email community.wardens@northlincs.gov.uk and we will work with you to see if this can be achieved.

The defibrillator in Central Park in Scunthorpe was the 100th to be fitted in North Lincolnshire.

North Lincolnshire Youth Council

North Lincolnshire Youth Council (NLYC) members have developed some resources to help raise awareness about defibrillators. You can download the resources below or contact young.voice@northlincs.gov.uk or on 01724 298434 for printed copies.

  • A leaflet which dispels myths about defibrillators and highlights how they can be used to save a life.
  • A ‘defib here’ [JPEG, 1Mb] poster and ‘your nearest defib is’ [PDF, 2Mb] poster which can help to easily locate the defibrillator should it be needed.
