Accessing defibrillators

Although it is best practice for sites to have a defibrillator, smaller sites may not have the financial resources or personnel trained to use them on their sites.

In these instances there are several resources where you can find the location of the nearest defibrillator in case of emergency:

  • GoodSAM app – The GoodSAM system has a built in crowd-sourced defibrillator registry. With this built-in function, GoodSAM users can help even before a life is in danger, by registering public access defibrillators throughout the community.
  • HeartSafe – Using innovative, advanced technology with HeartSafe® Public Access Cabinets and Defibrillators, communities are provided with solutions to obtain AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) in the quickest time possible, should a sudden cardiac arrest occur.
