A guide for placing a defibrillator in your community

Many communities have equipped themselves with defibrillators that are available for members of the public to use in an emergency prior to arrival of the emergency services. The common term used is Community Public Access Defibrillators (cPAD).

It is well known that when a person collapses and is not breathing normally their life is at risk. In many situations a person will have suffered from a sudden cardiac arrest SCA. This means that their heart has stopped beating and without urgent medical assistance and first aid treatment chances of survival are very low indeed.

If you have a cPAD programme in place or would like to get one up and running but dont know where to start please take a look at our frequently asked questions and call us to discuss your requirements. You will find alot of conflicting information on the internet from different companies, charities and medical professionals. We will give you open and honest information to equip you with the knowledge to make an informed decision that will work best for your community and allow you to put others at ease and ultimately become rescue ready.
