Defibrillator checks and maintenance
With the large increase in community defibrillators, the Charity has designed and implemented a full governance system will online facilities for the reporting of site checks, defibrillator deployments and more. This is called WebNos™(Web based notification system)
WebNos is available for any Community Heartbeat Trust delivered or supported defibrillator site however we are happy to provide this service to non-CHT sites.
All sites can be registered and provide the responsible persons with the facility for maintenance and management in a simple system. This uses different reports to activate or de-activate your site dependent on status. In completing these checks and having full governance this addresses the potential vicarious liability issues. Even providing reports for the coroner if required.
If you are interested in registering your defibrillator on WebnoS please contact us here and request an "Ambulance Briefing Form".
