Have your say on how your council tax is spent

At Hertfordshire County Council we want to give you the chance to have your say on what our budget priorities should be for this year. We are committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity for their voice to be heard.

Take part in the budget survey

Our services affect the lives of every resident, business and community in Hertfordshire. As with all county councils, we continue to face significant financial constraints.

In order to tackle these issues we know we must continue to find innovative ways to improve and reduce costs, using all available resources to help identify these solutions.

Last year we received over 2000 responses to this survey, helping us to focus our future spending on services that matter most to you.

This survey closes on Sunday 15 December 2019. Please get your responses in before then.

To find out more information please visit our website.

Please share with us your opinion and help us to shape our budget for the next financial year.

Benington Defibrillators
Alarmed Outdoor AED Cabinet


This defibrillator cabinet is specially designed for outdoor use. It provides protection from dust, rain, cold, rust and moisture. The cabinet is temperature regulated and contains a heating and fan system to provide protection of the AED unit.

The cabinet is made of a clear anti-UV treated polycarbonate cover and ABS frame providing durable, shock resistant protection for the AED. It has an audible alarm and flashing red LED light when the cabinet is open.

The cabinet has a built in heating and fan system. The heating allows the AED to be stored in extreme cold conditions while the fan system allows heat to be extracted from the AED compartment when the weather is warm.

The sensor automatically activates a white light to help identification of the cabinet in low ambient light.

  • Essentially the white flashing helps people to locate the defibrillator

  • It flashes red if the case is opened and a siren also sounds to alert people so the first responder gets additional people to help
