  1. Instructions for use:

    1. Dial 999 to alert emergency services and unlock the box
    2. Remove the defibrillator
    3. Follow the voice instructions coming from the defibrillator (I thought this bit was mildly cool)

  2. Some of them in the UK have been converted into ATMs. One I went to charged 50p for withdrawal, so no one uses them when there is like 20 free ATMs on the same road.

  3. I’LL probably sound like a dick for saying this this reminds of Mr bean where the guy has a heart attack and he pulls out a car energy cords and uses them like a defibrillators

  4. I work in a old public building with telephone closets. Most have been converted to storage, but some allow people to sit down and have a cellphone conversation without being loud and in-the-way.

  5. The defibrillator phone boxes have been bought by local councils from BT. You can tell they are no longer BT maintained because the crown is gold, which is a non standard feature on the K6 model.

  6. The only place I see red phone boxes like this is in the London tourist traps. I only see the 90s BT branded booties with sex cards still in them and a shit internet enabled machine of some sort

  7. I legit saw a woman in my yard use one the other day, to make a phone call, and was stunned that 1. it still worked and 2. the woman didn’t have her own phone. Don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone use it in the 10 years I’ve been in this area.

  8. Now I’m imagining a comedy gag in which a guy from the 60s uses a time-machine to go into the future, when an emergency ensues and he runs into one of these, holds the pads up to his ear and mouth and gets the shock of his life.

  9. This is really fantastic. AEDs are lifesavers but only if they are there when needed. A person experiencing ventricular fibrillation only has minutes or slightly longer with CPR. However, an AED can dramatically increase the odds of survival if they get there quickly.
