Thanks to everyone who has supported our fundraising to date. Special thanks to John McCarthy of Penneys for his help in allowing the erection of our first AED cabinet. We look forward to positioning many more in the future.


Cork Lions City Centre Defibrillator Project.

Why: Research has shown that having early access to a Defibrillator (AED) with CPR more than doubles the survival rate of persons suffering sudden cardiac arrest. Every minute waiting for the intervention via an AED reduces the survival rate by 10%. Currently there are no publicly accessible AEDs in the Cork city centre on a 24-hour basis

What: To provide the public in Cork City Centre with quick access to AEDs on a 24 x 7 basis.

            To provide website and Facebook pages so that the AEDs can be easily located.

            To service AEDs and replenish pads/material as required.

How: Locating 12 AEDs throughout the city centre so that they are accessible in less than 2 minutes on all main pedestrian routes and less than 4 minutes on all other streets.

     

Who: Cork Lions are fundraising to allow the purchase of AEDs with cabinets.

We are asking businesses in the Cork area to participate by doing one/all of the following -

1                    Allow an AED to be located on the external of their premises.

2                    Donate / Provide funding for an AED + Cabinet.

3                    Have their workforce trained on the use of AEDs and CPR.

4                    Help fund ongoing costs of consumable replacement or AED servicing.

When: Timeline – July 2016  - 1 AED; Dec 2016 - 3 AEDs; July 2017  - 8 AEDs; July 2018  - 12 AEDs
