Life-saving devices that can help first responders in moments when every second counts have been added to 10 new locations around Bunbury’s CBD.

The City of Bunbury partnered with St John WA to add the automated external defibrillators (AEDs) so people could help boost the chances of survival of someone having a heart attack.

The AEDs have been placed in locations where there was a higher risk of cardiac arrest, but also where they could be accessed 24 hours a day.

St John WA’s South West regional manager Dianne Langford-Fisher said she was proud to see the growing network and improved access to AEDs in the region.

“The greater allocation of AEDs in accessible locations will further strengthen St John WA’s commitment to supporting West Australians with their healthcare needs,” Ms Langford-Fisher said.
