Sports clubs and defibrillation

Vital First Aid Training Services

The media has recently run several articles about the need for defibrillators at sporting clubs especially at the playing fields. Although the likelihood for fit young players to need a defibrillator is low we cannot forget about the not so young referees and spectators. The statistics very clearly show the massive increase in survival rates from Cardiac Arrest when first aiders have access to a defibrillator as opposed to having to wait for an ambulance to come. Adrian Date from Vital First Aid has been using defibrillators for nearly 30 years and encourages all sporting venues to invest in one of these life-saving devices. The Heartsine 500P is in his opinion the best defibrillator available on the market for public use, Heartsine also run a free replacement PadPak and free donation of a new defibrillator in the event of a real emergency ( conditions apply ). You can contact Vital First Aid for prices on these devices – generally we will match or typically beat any other competitors price.

COVID-19 UPDATE

Traveling thru Sydney during this lockdown for first aid training is not recommended – there are better and safer options.  

Unfortunately ALL our Sydney venues are closed due to the COVID Lockdown till the end of July. We feel that the risk of moving thru Sydney unnecessarily is simply too great for our trainers and students.

You can complete our online option for CPR and First Aid at home and avoid traveling during this Lock-down.
