ZOLL AEDs approved for NSW Government Office of Sport AED Grant

December 12, 2017 – ZOLL® Medical Australia is proud to have both the AED Plus® and ZOLL AED 3™ automated external defibrillators approved for NSW Office of Sport AED Grants.

The Local Sport Defibrillator Grant Program will provide NSW community-based sports clubs the opportunity to acquire an AED package for their club or sports facility at a reduced cost. The Grant Program has allocated $4 million over four years to provide not-for-profit, grass roots sports clubs with a grant for up to 50% of the AED package.

Minister for Sport, Stuart Ayres said, “Over 33,000 Australians experience cardiac arrest each year, with the first eight minutes critical to improving the likelihood of survival. With thousands of people flocking to local sports grounds and open spaces each week, it makes sense to have this life-saving equipment on-hand.”

To find out more information on the grant program and how to apply, visit the NSW Office of Sport website. Applications for the first grant round are open now and close on December 20, 2017. ZOLL have ten AED service providers approved by NSW Office of Sport. Contact us today, and we will be happy to put you in contact with a service provider to suit your needs.
