Defibrillator Access in the town.

Updated: May 2023

The Town Council is committed to providing improved defibrillator access across Axminster.

Currently, you can find a public access defibrillator at the following locations (to the best of our knowledge).

* indicates that this defibrillator is owned and managed by the Town Council
** indicates a defibrillator in private ownership which may not be available 24/7.

Most defibrillator cabinets are locked to prevent theft, and access is via a code available via 999 Emergency Operator.

We have provided a WHAT-THREE-WORDS (W3W) location for each unit. Enter the reference here https://what3words.com/ or via the what3words mobile app to find the defibrillator's location.
