The Accommodation Association of Australia has taken on the initiative to create the Heart Safe Hotels program in Partnership with Heart Safe Australia and Mindray Defibrillators.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) knows no boundaries.

  • In Australia approximately 30,000 people sustain Sudden Cardiac Arrest outside of a hospital and are treated by emergency medical services (EMS) each year (On average – 575 Australian’s every week!)
  • An average of only 9% of its victims in Australia survive
  • It can happen anytime, anywhere and to anyone, even young athletes
  • Early defibrillation is the single most effective treatment for Sudden Cardiac Arrest
  • Defibrillation within three minutes of collapse can increase the chance of survival to over 70%

The CEO of the Accommodation Association of Australia has raised these critical points of consideration for all AAoA members to support this Heart Safe Hotels program.

  • Duty of Care, that our members have for their guests and employees in the professional industry of accommodation.
  • Safety first, aside from complying with building code safety laws, our members believe this type of equipment add to the safe environment we offer.
  • The public can book with confidence knowing that any property that has a defibrillator on hand is likely to have knowledge of first aid and how to use the equipment.
  • Employees are assured of a safer working environment for all.

Together as an industry we can save more lives!
