Defibrillator Grants

Recent tragic Cardiac Arrest events involving professional sportspersons at the peak of their fitness show that Cardiac Arrest can happen to absolutely ANYONE at ANY TIME and ANYWHERE

If someone goes into cardiac arrest without a defibrillator, they have a 7% chance of survival. If a defibrillator is on the patient within the first 3-5 minutes, the chances of survival are over 70%

PADs are defibrillators placed in public places and accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The defibrillators are kept in an external cabinet, so when someone calls 999 in an emergency, the call handler can direct you to where the nearest defibrillator is. While an ambulance is on the way to the scene, bystanders can commence CPR and defibrillation before paramedics arrive.
