Sheringham's Tesco supermarket now has a lifesaving defibrillator, thanks to the company's charity partnership with the British Heart Foundation.
A team of staff have been trained to use the equipment, which will be fixed to a wall next to the customer service point, but it will also be available for use by members of the public.
'It is a vital piece of equipment which could potentially save lives,' said store manager Leon Egmore.
'And, particularly living in a rural area with an older population, every minute counts.'
Mr Egmore now wants to let local people know that the defibrillator, which has been installed as part of a Tesco initiative to put lifesaving equipment in selected stores, can be used by anyone encountering an emergency.

'We are in an ideal position near the centre of town and, because the machine talks you through what to do, anyone can use it – the aim is to make sure that lifesaving equipment is never more than a few minutes away,' he said.
