Poll: Do you know where to find an AED when you're out and about?

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Marlborough Midweek

Hi Marlborough,

The Red Cross Centre and the Blenheim i-Site has received two new defibrillators, or AEDs (automated external defibrillator).

Blenheim i-Site Operations Manager Amy Swain said people often ran to the i-Site for help.

“We're an information centre, so it makes sense that people rush here to ask us for help in an emergency,” Swain said.

“And a lot of international people come here for help too ... while they're not here at the moment, hopefully they will be eventually.”

Is that a teahouse on Stewart Island?

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Why yes it is, and it's also a man cave, a shed, and a builder/engineer's retirement project. Little wonder Allan Jones' quirky build is a runner-up in the 2021 Resene Shed of the Year competition run by NZ Gardener.
