With 430 defibrillators being rolled out at community sports facilities across NSW, sport will be safer for players and spectators alike.

The first round of the NSW Government’s $4 million Local Sport Defibrillation Program is being rolled out across the state.

More than 2500 defibrillators will be installed at community sporting facilities over the next four years.

The NSW Government is funding up to 50 per cent of the defibrillator cost, along with training and maintenance support.

Minister for Sport Stuart Ayres said we know this program will save lives.

“More than 33,000 Australians experience cardiac arrest every year and early access to CPR and defibrillation can influence survival rates by up to 75 percent,”  Ayres said.
