Local clubs are encouraged to apply for funding for a defibrillator through the Marshall Government's Active Club Program which opens today.
Clubs who do not have an Automated External Defrillator (AED) can apply for them today through Round 2 of the Office of Recreation, Sport and Racing's Active Club Program.
During the latest round of the Active Club Program not one club applied for funding to purchase a defibrillator!
This is an important chance for clubs to access life saving equipment. In a medical emergency, SA Health recommends calling Triple Zero (000), pushing by giving CPR and shocking with an AED.
The Triple Zero call taker will provide detailed instructions on when and how to use an AED and will direct the user to the nearest device on the SAAS AED register.
