Template Letters to Defibrillator Guardians

Before sending any messages based on unmatched AEDs in this tool, please personally check the location/presence of the AED on the ground (don't assume OSM is accurate/up-to-date) and also check what is recorded in DefibFinder (since the data in this tool is a snapshot that may be out of date).

Defibrillator Missing from 999 Database

Dear Sir/Madam,

I've just noticed that the AED (defib) at [LOCATION] does not seem to be recorded on https://www.defibfinder.uk/ . Search there for [POSTCODE], and you'll see that it does not show up. (The nearby AED at [OTHER LOCATION] is recorded, but not the [LOCATION] one.)

The data in https://www.defibfinder.uk/ comes from "The Circuit" (https://www.thecircuit.uk/), which is the database used by the Ambulance Service when handling 999 calls. So it would be really useful if this AED was registered there.

The data in the "The Circuit" is provided by the individual owners/guardians of each AED. I don't know who looks after the Defibrillator above. But if it's not you, hopefully you will know who does. Either way, it would be good if the guardian could go to https://www.thecircuit.uk/ and register the AED above.

Best wishes,

Robert Whittaker.

Defibrillator Location Error in 999 Database

Dear Sir/Madam,

I've just noticed that the location for the AED (defib) at [LOCATION] in https://www.defibfinder.uk/ is incorrect. Search there for [POSTCODE], and you'll find one with the name "[NAME]" located at [INCORRECT LOCATION]. The AED is actually [TRUE LOCATION] about [OFFSET] away.

The data in https://www.defibfinder.uk/ comes from "The Circuit", which is the database used by the Ambulance service when handling 999 calls. So it's important that the locations there are correct.

The data in the "The Circuit" is provided by the individual owners/guardians of each AED. I don't know who looks after the Defibrillator above. But if it's not you, hopefully you will know who does. Either way, it would be good if the guardian could log in to https://www.thecircuit.uk/ and correct the location.

Best wishes,

Robert Whittaker.
