IT’S NEVER BEEN EASIER TO SAVE A LIFE
YOU CAN’T HURT ANYONE WITH A DEFIBRILLATOR, YOU CAN ONLY SAVE THEM.

A defibrillator is an extremely safe and easy to use piece of life-saving technology.

They are a portable doctor, capable of bringing you, or someone you know back from the brink. That’s why it’s so important to make sure you’re never further than 180 seconds away.

CPR ISN’T ENOUGH
A Cardiac Arrest is different to a heart attack and more lethal.

Why? Because if you or someone you know has one, CPR isn’t effective. Your heart is having an electrical failure, and only a defibrillator can restart it.

BY THE TIME AN AMBULANCE ARRIVES, IT’S TOO LATE.
If you have a cardiac arrest, your best chance of survival is in the first 180 seconds.

An Ambulance’s average response time is 8 minutes.

Data shows that for cardiac arrest calls 59% are deceased before an ambulance even arrives. Until the government takes drastic action, we need to look after themselves and others.

MEET THE SURVIVORS.

A CARDIAC ARREST CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE.
A DEFIBRILLATOR CAN BRING ANYONE BACK.
