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.
5CS has a defibrillator for the general public to use in the event of sudden cardiac arrest.
We are located at 46 Main Road Port Pirie SA 5540 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 5CS'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.
