The first home defibrillator has been set up on the side of a property in Wisbech Road in March following a plea for help.
Two weeks ago councillor Rob Skoulding sent out an appeal to find somebody willing to have the life saving equipment installed at their home.
This week it is now in place and ready for action should it ever be needed.
The unit was installed at 118 Wisbech Road by electrician Darren Biggs.
Cllr Skoulding wanted to fill a void between Russell Avenue and Peas Hill area.
It takes the defibrillator total in the town up to 26.
His aim is to get 36 defibrillators across the whole of March so there is one within easy walking distance of everywhere in town.

Since then he has raised thousands as well as donated his allowance money as a councillor toward the scheme.
