As a result of successfully re-certifying for the NZ Football Qualmark standard, Tawa AFC received a new AED (automated external defibrillator). The Club sought grant funding for an external case and last month (August) in-conjunction with the Wellington City Council installed the AED at its Clubrooms at Redwood Park.
The AED has been installed in a locked cabinet outside the Clubrooms and is available 24/7 for use by any person in the community needing an AED when someone is suffering a cardiac arrest.
To open the cabinet and retrieve the AED, call 111 – Ambulance for the access code.
To see where other AED’s are located in your area, download the AED locator app to your phone.
