Defibrillators for community access

To enhance public safety and support the community in an emergency, publically accessible defibrillators are located in City of Gold Coast facilities. 

An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a small portable device which delivers an electrical shock to a person’s heart to restore rhythm, allowing blood and oxygen to flow to the heart, brain and body. Having immediate access to a defibrillator can increase the likelihood of survival for people experiencing cardiac arrest.

It’s easy to use an AED – it will tell you what to do. The AED will determine whether a shock is needed – not you.

Our defibrillators are in a highly visible and accessible location in each facility. Find more information by selecting the locations on the map below.
