What is a Cardiac Arrest?
A cardiac arrest occurs when a person's heart suddenly stops pumping. Cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, regardless of age or health and it can happen in any workplace. A person in cardiac arrest will fall unconscious and will not be breathing normally. This is because blood is not being pumped through the heart to the brain, lungs or other organs.
Federation Council encourages everyone to learn CPR or undertake a refresher course in the hope of maybe one day saving someone’s life.
St John Ambulance Australia has produced an instructional Basic Life Support Flow Chart. The chart should be kept in a prominent location in your home for easy reference.

Register a Public Access Defibrillator
Is there already a public access defibrillator in your community? Maybe there is one in your workplace or in your local community facility. If nobody knows about it, it is less likely to be used to save a life.
You can register your nearest defibrillator on this map by contacting Council on 02 6033 8974 or email email@example.com
We also encourage you to register your AED with the St Johns.
