Defibrillators have become an indispensable lifesaving tool embedded across Melbourne. With over 1,500 publicly registered AEDs around the city, these devices are now readily accessible when seconds matter during sudden cardiac arrest. Major hubs like train stations, airports, ferries, shops, offices, schools, and community centres have made installing defibrillators an urgent priority. This extensive network has already helped rescue many lives by enabling swift defibrillation response.
Ongoing efforts continue to expand AED infrastructure even further across the metro area. With clear signage and community awareness campaigns, Melbourne residents and visitors can quickly locate nearby AEDs. The widespread availability of defibrillators makes Melbourne a leading example of cardiac emergency preparedness and demonstrates the critical value of making AEDs visible and easy to access.
