Shocktober – Restart a Heart

by Oct 7, 20200 comments

Shocktober is here!

Throughout ‘Shocktober’ we’re on a mission to ensure all 6.7 million Victorians are armed with the knowledge of what to do in an emergency – how to perform basic CPR and, importantly, how to locate and use their nearest Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

Sadly, only 1 in 10 Australians survive a cardiac arrest. Together we can improve cardiac arrest survival rates by learning CPR and locating our local AEDs.

A local paramedic will be hosting an online session to teach you these lifesaving skills and about the new AED that has been donated to your community.  

To sign up to the session, simply email your name and location to [email protected]ambulance.vic.gov.au

To know where your nearest AED is search ‘find and AED’ or visit https://registermyaed.ambulance.vic.gov.au/find-an-aed
