A public AED for Castlecliff
Fanstastic news - Castlecliff has secured funding for an AED!
So WTF is that you may ask? Basically it's a smart electronic "defibrillator" that can restart a heart when used soon after a cardiac arrest. Without the AED you're looking at a 1 in 10 chance, with CPR and the AED used within 4 minutes you probably live!
Watch this recent TVNZ video for more
The nice folks at Cigna Insurance have paid for the HeartSaver AED and we need to get the funds to put it on the wall near Clifflife/Citadel secured in a codebox & monitored by CCTV. That way if someone had an Cardiac Arrest you run to the box at 16 Rangiora St, the 111 operator gives you the access code & instructions, you run back and maybe save a life! (e.g. this TVNZ link )
