Landcare SJ recently signed up to be part of the St John community first responder system, funded through the Lotterywest Heart Grant
The funding provided for a public access defibrillator and storage cabinet, which has been installed on an external wall of the SJ Landcare Centre which is located at 12 Paterson St, Mundijong.
The code to open the cabinet will be provided by the operator at 000 emergency services when somebody rings for an ambulance.
Currently, there are over 3,500 registered defibrillator locations, and the system has proven to save people’s lives of cardiac arrest victims on over 100 different cases.
Hopefully, ours will never need to be required.
