As part of the Jennian Homes Heart Foundation campaign, the Design Windows Nelson and West Coast Branches have each purchased an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). Nelson’s defibrillator (pictured) is installed just inside the front door, to provide public access for anyone in need of this vital life-saving tool.

Early defibrillation is vital to improve the survival rate of sudden cardiac arrest in the community. CPR and defibrillation cannot wait until the ambulance arrives. In cardiac arrest, every minute that passes without CPR & defibrillation impacts the patient’s chance of survival.

All AED units are registered on a national database. See where your closest AED unit is located here: http://aedlocations.co.nz/
