Is there a defibrillator in your area? HPCP in conjunction with Pitlochry High School and the Scottish Ambulance Service have created the Highland Perthshire Defibrillator App which locates all the defibrillators in Highland Perthshire. The app is now live! and ready to download. Please click here to find out more.

This is an important and exciting project, and we would like to know about each and every defibrillator that exists in Highland Perthshire and ones in the pipeline. If you can assist, please contact Michella Samy on 07977 222271 or email: michella@freedom-pa.com, or download the questionnaire for more information. With your help, we will be one step closer to having life saving information at our fingertips.
