The re-appointed Liberal Morrison Government has announced that they will invest $1 million to support the installation of Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDS’) at camping sites throughout Australia, resulting in them being more rescue ready in the case of an emergency such as a Sudden Cardiac Arrest!
With camping being such a popular pastime for so many people of all ages, this enterprise will ensure caravanning and camping will be so much safer for Australians.
At Defib For Life our goal is that no Australian will be further than 10 minutes away from an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) unit. With this initiative, over 1000 Caravan Parks are expected to receive funding to ensure that defibrillators are installed on site, so campers will be no further that 10 minutes away from this life saving machine.
CEO of Caravan Industry Association of Australia Stuart Lamont who are partners in the project says “this program will ensure that …. lifesaving help is close to hand”.
