Thanks to the donations, the CFA and Brigades Donations Trust is allocating $1.04m to purchase this important life-saving equipment which improves the safety of both firefighters and community members at incidents.

The new 426 defibrillators will bring CFA’s total to more than 1,700 across the state, ensuring every group vehicle has a defibrillator and every brigade has at least one vehicle with a defibrillator.

CFA Chief Officer Jason Heffernan said it’s important our members are prepared if a cardiac emergency occurs.

“I hope these defibrillators will never have to be used but having them available gives our members and the community the best chance of survival,” CO Heffernan said.

“Defibrillators save lives – it’s that simple. We have seen our members use them in some emergency situations recently and the early intervention has saved their lives.

“Donations from the community have made these additional defibrillators possible, and we are so grateful and humbled by their support.”

The rollout of the 426 defibrillators is expected to be complete in early July.
