Defibrillators now in hundreds of Kiwi communities, thanks to Z
More than 200 Kiwi communities now have free access to defibrillators following the completion of Z Energy’s initiative to install the devices at each of its service stations across the country.
The fully portable machines, purchased by Z earlier in the year as part of the company’s partnership with St John, were installed at each of Z’s retail sites in November and are now available for any member of the community to use.
Z’s Community Manager, Christine Langdon, said completing the roll-out was an important milestone in ensuring communities had easy access to the life-saving technology.
“Now that this work is complete and the devices are available at all of our service stations, we just want to make sure people know exactly where to go in an emergency to get access to a defibrillator,” Christine said.
Kiwis can easy locate their nearest defibrillator using the AED Locations website, http://aedlocations.co.nz/. The nearest Z service station, including opening hours, can be located using the Z website, http://z.co.nz/.
