Do you know where your nearest AED (Automated External Defibrillator) is?
If you’re unsure, what would you do if someone close to you suddenly suffered a cardiac arrest? It’s a fact that without CPR and defibrillation, only 8% of people who have a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) survive. We’re here to change that.

The AED facts cannot be ignored:

For every minute that passes without CPR and defibrillation, the chances of survival decrease by a staggering 7–10%
4 out of 5 cardiac arrests (88%) occur outside of a hospital environment. Access to an AED may save a colleague or loved ones life
