WHAT "AUSTRALIAN MADE" DID FOR MANUFACTURING, WE AIM TO DO FOR PREVENTING SUDDEN CARDIAC DEATH
Time is of the essence when it comes to responding to Sudden Cardiac Arrest - knowing where to find an AED (defibrillator) in these situations could save precious minutes - or seconds.
It’s an initiative that recognises businesses, organisations and community groups who demonstrate that they take the prevention of sudden cardiac death seriously by having a AED on site.
By displaying an A5-sized "Heart of the Nation" door or window sticker on every entry to your place of business, it is a sign of your participation in the program, and communities will be able to quickly identify Heart of the Nation Members who have publicly available AED's, should they need one.
Heart of the Nation also aims to educate organisations and individuals on the importance of having AED's on site and accessible when they’re needed – as was the case when Greg’s life was saved by an onsite AED in January 2020.
Heart of the Nation’s Network recognises those businesses, organisations, groups or individuals that:
Have a Publicly Accessible AED in the community, either at their places of business, and/or
Are a retailer of AED’s, and/or
Provide accredited CPR courses, and/or
Have an in-home AED and are prepared to allow it to be used by neighbours in the event of an emergency.
