Each year, over 30,000 Australians suffer an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Tragically, only 1 in 10 survive. Learning CPR and knowing where to find and how to use an AED can mean the difference between life and death.
Territorians can now quickly locate an AED in an emergency, greatly improving the chances of survival for cardiac arrest patients, through the free St John First Responder mobile app.
The life-saving app locates nearby AEDs in the Territory at the push of a button and uses GPS-assisted information to help in an emergency situation.
St John NT teaches these lifesaving skills year-round through nationally accredited first aid training, community education, and volunteer training.
