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.”

Share your thoughts below and don't forget to write NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the conversations section of the Marlborough Midweek.
