Defib in Your Street offers free courses in CPR for St Albans, Kings Park and Kealba community groups

Every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces chances of survival by 10% for someone in sudden cardiac arrest. Currently, this only happens for less than 1% of patients.

However, only about 30% of Victorians have been trained to perform First Aid or CPR within the past three years. The Defib in Your Street Program aims to drastically improve that statistic in the postcode of 3021.

St John is offering community groups in the 3021 postcode suburbs of St Albans, Kings Park and Kealba the opportunity to receive a free CPR session for their community group members, their family and friends.

What is Defib in Your Street?

Sadly the 3021 postcode has one of the highest number of cardiac arrests in Victoria.

St John Ambulance aims to help this community increase survival rates through the Defib in Your Street Program.

It is a free program that aims to make this postcode one of the safest places in Victoria to have a sudden cardiac arrest. The program aims to install 30 defibrillators in the postcode and train 5000 residents in CPR.

All residents need to do is get involved by either learning CPR, or hosting a defibrillator at their home.

Defib in Your Street and the CPR courses are run by St John Ambulance. The sessions can be customised to suit your community group, and they can either be accredited, or just an informal information session.
