AED & Equipment Info

Gareth Jenkin started AED Locations after teaching thousands of people how to use CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators). During training sessions, he was often asked about AED locations. He knew that there were a lot of publicly available AEDs, but realised that they were worthless if people didn’t know where they were.

People were dying within 50 metres of an AED because no one knew it was there.

Publishing AED locations online would make it easier to find them in an emergency, but Gareth lacked the money and the technological know-how to make it happen. After The Listener ran a story on heart attacks and AEDs, Abletech approached Gareth to help.

An AED can increase someone’s chance of survival by up to 80% if applied immediately.

Over 9,000 locations are now mapped on this website and the Android and iPhone apps.

Testimonial
I recently attended the session you ran at the Nelson Bays PHO for CPR Level 2 .  It was very professional and informative but at the same time you made it interesting with your stories.  It was the best session that I have attended in many years and that was down to your real enthusiasm for encouraging everyone to give it a go rather than do nothing.  I think that is the thing that most stood out for me from the whole session… even if your technique is not perfect it is better than doing nothing at all. I would not hesitate to recommend Resus Nelson for professional training with an added touch of humour. - Jane Green, Receptionist / Administrator, Skin Institute
