It is our belief that defibrillators should be as common as fire extinguishers. Approximately 95 percent of people who suffer a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), will die before reaching the hospital and 50,000 people this year will suffer Sudden Cardiac Arrest. With effective community initiatives in place, the survival rate could be as high as 70 percent.
You and your community are the most important line of defence against cardiac arrest and none of this would be possible without you choosing to implement a community defibrillator project in your area.
To those of you about to fund-raise we salute you and will provide as much help as possible to enable you to reach your fundraising goals. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
