DEFIBRILLATORS IN THE TWO VILLAGES: The Parish now has two defibrillators installed as part of the support from the emergency services, and other organisations, to this community. They are located at: Arlington Village Phone Box (located outside the Yew Tree Inn) Bede’s Porter’s Lodge (located Main cark park entrance, Michelham Priory Road). 
Anyone is allowed to use this equipment in an attempt to resuscitate a person whose heart has apparently stopped beating. The equipment will prevent it being used on a person whose heart is still beating. You will not harm the victim as the machine will tell you what to do. Information above copied from APC web site
