Save Lives by Fixing Defibrillator Policy

35,000 to 40,000 Canadians die of sudden cardiac arrest every year, and defibrillators increase survival rates by up to 30 percent if used in the first few minutes.

“Many departments and agencies in the federal government recognize that defibrillators save lives, yet just as many do not."

Paramedics want this problem fixed so we can ensure all victims of cardiac arrest can receive immediate care as soon as 9-1-1 is dialed.
