Personal Defibrillators now on all Seaforth Football Club Fields
All ovals across the peninsular are now safer with personal defibrillators being placed on ovals in an effort to reduce fatalities as a result of cardiac arrest.
If someone collapses from a cardiac arrest, the first 10 minutes are critical to saving a person's life.
Using the defibrillator is easy - simply take it out of the bag and open the case - it will start giving you instructions. It will walk you through removing clothing and hair from the chest area, place the pads in position, assesses the person for a shock and delivers if necessary. After this it will assist with counting off giving the person compressions until help arrives.
This is an important tool that could save you or your team mates life.
Although more common in adults, cardiac arrests can happen to anyone at any age. The quicker we react, the better chance of survival.
The aim of the MWFA is to have a defibrillator on every football field by the end of 2017. Please look out for the defibrillator at your local field. The location should be marked with the red Heartsafe Zone flag.
We recommend that you take the 10 minute online course to familiarise yourself with the device so you will be confident in using should the need ever arise.
