Every year an alarming number of Sudden Cardiac Arrests occur in our sporting clubs. What is even more alarming is the vast majority of clubs have not taken measures to safeguard their sporting community with the use of a defibrillator.
Project Defib is a national program brought to you by Red Cross College – the national training arm of Australian Red Cross. This program will enable every sporting club in Australia access to the latest Lifeline VIEW Defibrillator to assist in reducing the number of fatalities resulting from Cardiac Arrest.
The program will enable every club to receive a grant which will provide a comprehensive Defibrillator package at a subsidised cost. We believe that forming a partnership with the individual sporting clubs is crucial and this includes ongoing national support and mentoring from our state and regional offices throughout Australia. We have combined resources of over 500 personnel in Australia.
