In Canada someone experiences a cardiac arrest every thirteen minutes. Early recognition, CPR and use of an AED can increase the odds of survival by 75 per cent or more. The Save A Life app from St. John Ambulance-Alberta Council is supported by the AEDMAP database, wherein Canadian organizations with an AED can register their device. In the event of an emergency, general public or Emergency Services can utilize the application to locate the nearest AED, saving precious seconds.
Save A Life’s core focus is centered on improving the odds of survival of those in an emergency by locating the closest AED.
AED registry is populated in two ways:
Company self registration of their own AED’s
Crowd sourced by allowing the public to report the location of defibrillators
Since 1883 St. John Ambulance has provided Canadians with the most comprehensive and state-of-the-art First Aid and CPR training. With programs for business, individuals and communities St. John Ambulance first aid and CPR courses provide life-saving skills and support to communities across Canada.
