Defib For Life would like to thank all our supporters during 2018 in particular our Red Army Members who have helped us to pass on the message of how important it is to have an AED installed in communities across Australia. We have asked them to rally the troops and sound the trumpet which they have certainly done!
They got the word out about the importance of purchasing an AED. They shared our social media posts with their networks, they shared their stories and they took the steps to make their communities safer places to be.
Some special moments during 2018 include;
- the revival of a young football player in May using a unit supplied to the club by Defib For Life
- and a 15-year-old boy saved by his quick-thinking young colleagues after he suffered a SCA at the McDonalds store he worked at.
In 2019 we are looking forward to more of you getting the word out and therefore hearing about more saves. We will be back in the New Year and we look forward to working toward a safe and rescue ready year ahead.
