Defibrillator units and training to be gifted to sporting clubs and community groups

St John Ambulance Victoria recently launched a community program which will see it gift more than $70,000 worth of lifesaving defibrillators and associated training to Ballarat and Geelong community sporting clubs or organisations.

With more than 5,500 cases of sudden cardiac arrests (SCA) in Victoria each year, a number of which take place on the sporting field, the Heart Start 2015 program has been launched to equip local sporting clubs or community groups with lifesaving defibrillators and training.
