Instructions to report the location of an AED
If you have filled in this form before and do not need these instructions, click here to go straight to the form.
The minimum information required to complete this form is:
1. Address of location of AED;
2. Photograph of the AED to verify the existence of an AED in this location.
Beyond that, any other information you can provide us will help to verify the location, or simply provide additional information that will assist someone in finding the AED when needed.
Step 1 - Take a photo of the AED in its location - see example below - this step can be done whilst in the form, as it will give you the option of taking a photo of the AED when you click on the "upload" button:
Once you have captured the photograph of the AED and have it stored in your phone/device, continue to Step 2.
Step 2 - Proceed to fill out the form providing as much information as you can please. We appreciate your time to do this! If you do not know the address of the location of the AED, if you could follow the instructions below to provide us with either the information that you can input into the form, or capture a screen shot of the data as described below, that would be fantastic!
Taking a screenshot of address and/or GPS (latitude and longitude) information:
1. Open your Google Maps or Apple Maps app;
2. Click on the "locator" icon - this icon looks like a little arrow head pointing to about 1 o'clock.
3. Once you have clicked on this icon, it will place a blue dot at your location. Click and hold on the blue dot to place a "pin" at that point.
4. In Apple Maps, it will then open up a pop-up window with a picture of a map inside of it.
5. Click on this window - not the "send my location" window.
6. This will open a window at the bottom of the screen with the Address and Coordinates details that look like (26.634311 E, 153,0973546 S - ie. latitude first, longitude second). Enter these into the latitude and longitude fields (without the S and the E at the end, and with a "-" in front of the latitude details) where requested and/or take a screenshot of this and upload the photo where there is the prompt to do so, and we can do this later.
7. In Google Maps, once you have clicked on your blue location dot, it will open a window at the bottom of the screen that will allow you to scroll down, until you see GPS coordinates that look like (-26.634311, 153,0973546 ie. latitude first, longitude second). Enter these into the latitude and longitude fields where requested and/or take a screenshot of this and upload the photo where there is the prompt to do so, and we can do this later.
