Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) Save Lives

The very reason for our existence is to help you save lives, and we have backed that up with investing in having an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) on site in our Christchurch training room.

Our AED is available for public use while we are in the building.

Each year around 2000 New Zealanders suffer some sort of cardiac arrest (heart attack) outside of hospital. While 70% of those who suffer a heart attack will receive CPR from a passer-by, the use of an AED increases the chance of recovery by almost 50%


An AED at your Work

We strongly believe that portable, automated defibrillators are an essential part of your workplace safety efforts, and so we have partnered with Alsco New Zealand to get one for your workplace at the lowest possible level of investment.

Although very simple to use, so that you are 100% comfortable should the need to use one arise, we offer a free course in the use of AEDs for anyone who makes use of our partnership with Alsco.

Find Your Closest AED

Of course, no matter how low the cost, not everyone has the budget to have their own AED on site, but knowing where AEDs are is a great first step.

Every Z Energy petrol station, and every Countdown supermarket have AEDs for public use, and AED Locations is a great resource with over 9,000 publicly available AEDs mapped on its website and its free app for Apple and Android.
