A HeartSafe® community is established when a group of people decide that they wish to reduce the odds of dying or not recovering fully from a cardiac arrest by installing an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) in a public place thereby giving 24 hour access to this life saving equipment.
Without immediate defibrillation and CPR when cardiac arrest occurs, the chances of survival are less than 5%. With a defibrillator being used on a patient combined with effective CPR, the odds of survival can be increased to 50%.
AED Locator promotes the placement of AEDs outdoors, in public places. PADs (Public Access Defibrillators) provide 24 hour access so that emergency life saving equipment is available to everyone whenever it is needed. AEDs are housed in secure, weatherproof, heated cabinets on the exterior walls of buildings such as Post Offices, village halls, schools, Inns, sports centres etc. and other visible locations in the community.
