Why Choose Us
Our not-for-profit package gives you a choice between the leading two AED’s on the market, face to face training and a 7 or 8 year warranty on product, pads and battery.
Defib For Life! (DFL) was founded by highly experienced Victorian MICA Paramedic Andrew White, following the deaths of several young athletes and officials at sporting venues in Victoria, in particular Stephen Buckman, a 19 year old player who collapsed and died from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) while attending training at Rupertswood Football Club in May 2010.
“The initiative is simple; we wanted to establish a pathway that will lead to educate communities on the subject of Sudden Cardiac Arrest and demonstrate how anyone can easily and safely use an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) in an effort to save a life.”
Over the past three years as the success of this initial supply program has grown, the goals of Defib have expanded as the community demand has increased. It is now more important than ever to respond to the demand in the community supplying more units nationally to sporting clubs or organisations, workplaces, schools, councils and the like; with this growth Defib Your Club for Life, now Defib For Life is enabled to further concentrate on its advocacy work within the community, local, state and federal government to eventually create relevant legislative change to make AED’s legally required within these locations.
