Council urging you to register your defibrillator

Thursday, 16 August 2018

Strathbogie Shire Council are urging those with life-saving defibrillators to register them, as the location of a large number of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) is unknown across the state. 

The chance of survival increases by 62% if a person in cardiac arrest is defibrillated by a bystander before an Ambulance arrives. 

Information about the location of registered AEDs is made available through an online registry, helping build community awareness and understanding on where local AEDs can be found. 

Ambulance Victoria estimates that on average, more than 2,500 AEDs are bought in Victoria each year but not registered, often meaning their location is not known by bystanders responding to a person in cardiac arrest.
