Defibrillator available to the public
Star FM has a defibrillator for the general public to use in the
event of sudden cardiac arrest.
*We are located at 37 Sydney St, Mackay and are open Monday to Friday.*
The Heart180 Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is designed to be used
by anyone, with clear step-by-step voice instructions that can guide
members of the public through the process.
Heart disease is a leading cause of death in Australia, with those who
suffer a sudden cardiac arrest having a 6 per cent chance of survival in
Australia. However early defibrillation can increase survival to 70 per cent.
The Defib is part of Star 101.9's parent company ARN's
ongoing commitment to providing a safer work environment and continuing to
drive its commitment to being hyperlocal and supporting its local community.
