Each year, Ambulance Victoria attends more than 5500 cardiac arrests in the community. Unfortunately, only one in 10 survive.
For every minute defibrillation is delayed, the chance of survival for a person in cardiac arrest decreases by nine percent. The early use of a defibrillator by members of the public can significantly increase a person’s chances of survival.
That’s why we need you to register the location of your Automated External Defibrillator (AED) with us. This small but important step can help link AEDs in communities across Victoria with people who need them when they need them.
