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.
5AU has a defibrillator for the general public to use in the event of sudden cardiac arrest.
We are located at 6 Denton Ct, Port Augusta SA 5700 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 5AU'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.
