Defibshop is a proud partner with SANFL (South Australian National Football League Inc.) and through this partnership we are seeing the introduction of many AEDs throughout South Australian sporting venues. Through this professional partnership, clubs can receive a grant to assist with their purchase, and along with their purchase, they receive a complete full AED package and ongoing support from the Defibshop team. “We really enjoy working with each of the clubs before and after they have made their purchase”. “It really is about a partnership not only with SANFL, but individual clubs too” Mr Boydon said.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest can and does strike anyone at any age. All sporting venues & fields are prime locations for this life threatening medical emergency. “Recently a young football player went into Sudden Cardiac Arrest on the field, and pleasingly he was resuscitated using an AED supplied not long ago by the Defibshop”. Mr Boydon went on to say.
