Plans are in place to fit a decommissioned telephone kiosk in Burchetts Green with a life-saving defibrillator.
The device, more commonly used in hospitals to treat cardiac arrests, would be available to any member of the public to use in an emergency.
Hurley Parish Council , which is working alongside Burchetts Green Village Association, has applied to the Royal Borough for listed building consent to start work.
The telephone box is one of two adopted by the parish 18 months ago after BT announced most of its kiosks were no longer financially viable, following an 80 per cent drop in use in the last five years.
