When a cardiac arrest happens, the chance of survival reduces by 10% for every minute that passes.

A defibrillator administers an electric shock to help re-start a heart.

Having fast access to a defib can be a life-saver. No training is needed to operate one, they can be fully or semi-automatic and will not deliver a shock if it is not needed.

Below is some documentation regarding specification and installation of defibrilators and safes:

We can help you to make the Defibrillator available 24:7 by providing a suitable cabinet and help with community awareness
