AED register

The NSW government has launched a community automatic external defibrillator (AED) register.

AEDs are used to revive someone from sudden cardiac arrest and can help save lives.

The register will show the locations of AEDs across NSW and in our community. If you manage or have access to an AED, please register it on the map and help save lives.
