Defibrillator Available to The Public

AED location 600x300

As part of ARN’s ongoing commitment to providing a safe work environment and also additional services to the community, we are pleased to announce the finalisation of the Heart180 defib rollout across our network of radio stations.

5CC has a defibrillator for the general public to use in the event of sudden cardiac arrest.

We are located at 4 Washington St, Port Lincoln SA 5606 and are open Monday to Friday.

The Heart180 Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is designed to be used by anyone, with clear step-by-step voice instructions that can guide members of the public through the process.

Heart disease is a leading cause of death in Australia, with those who suffer a sudden cardiac arrest having a 6 percent chance of survival in Australia. However early defibrillation can increase survival to 70 percent.

The Defib is part of 5CC's parent company ARN’s ongoing commitment to providing a safer work environment and continuing to drive its commitment to being hyperlocal and supporting its local community.
