An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a life-saving device that uses an electric shock to help reset the heart. As sudden cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in Australia, defibrillators are a vital tool. AEDs are automated devices, so first aid responders require little or no training in order to use them.
City of Ryde has defibrillators installed in Council buildings.
Sporting clubs are responsible for managing and maintaining defibrillators in parks.
St John Ambulance maintains a list of AEDs. You can view a map of AED locations or register your AED here.
