Purchase with Us

By choosing to purchase your AED from Heart of the Nation, you are not only equipping yourself with essential life-saving equipment but also supporting others in our industry. Your support helps us to educate the public, improve access to AEDs, and ultimately save lives.

Why Purchase from Us?


1. The Not-for-Profit Advantage


Unlike commercial entities, our primary goal is not profit, but enhancing community response to sudden cardiac arrest. Any profits made from AED sales go directly back into our operations and life-saving initiatives such as our national AED register, our mobile app, and educational campaigns. This enables us to continuously improve and expand our services, ultimately benefiting the community.


2. Comprehensive Support Beyond-the-Purchase Service


Our support doesn’t stop when you receive your AED or after the warranty period. It begins right from the start. If you're unsure about which AED suits your needs, how many your building requires, or where to install it, we're here to assist you. From the moment you purchase your AED, we offer comprehensive support. This includes training on how to use the device, regular audits to ensure it's always in top condition, and maintenance reminders to keep it running smoothly. In the event of an emergency where your AED is used, we're here to support everyone involved. We not only get your AED back in an operational state, but our team has a range of resources to assist anyone affected, even if they just need someone to talk to who understands what they're going through. Through our lived experience of cardiac arrest, we can provide relevant and caring support.


3. Training Programs


We offer a range of training services for you to select from. Our qualified trainers deliver high quality training to ensure that you and your team are always prepared to respond in an emergency. While you don’t need to be certified in CPR and AED usage to help save a life, some find it helps build their confidence and be more prepared in case they ever find themselves in an emergency. Nationally recognised first aid training is delivered through Allens Training RTO 90909.


4. Building a Safer Community with Technology


There are several ways we're leveraging technology to build a safer community:

National AED Register: We are building a national register of AED locations, making it easier to locate the nearest AED in an emergency, anywhere in Australia.


Heart of the Nation App: Become the missing link in the Chain of Survival during a sudden cardiac arrest. With our app, you can call 000 and automatically alert registered responders plus find your 10 nearest AEDs within a 5 kilometre radius, ensuring quick access during critical moments.


Contribution to Cardiac Research: A portion of our resources goes towards supporting cardiac research initiatives aimed at better understanding cardiac arrest triggers, improving AED technology, and enhancing emergency response protocols. By assisting in research, we aim to develop innovative solutions that further improve cardiac arrest response and increase survival rates.


5. Advocacy for Legislative Change 


We actively engage with policymakers and advocacy groups to promote legislative changes around AED accessibility and signage standards. We advocate for policies that mandate AED placement in public spaces, schools, and workplaces, ensuring that these life-saving devices are readily available when needed most. It doesn’t stop there - we work towards standardising signage requirements to facilitate quick identification of AED locations during emergencies, potentially saving precious minutes in critical situations.
