The 6pm 9 news on Saturday October 17 presented an amazing story of the survival of Jason Cripps from a sudden cardiac arrest. Jason’s life was saved by Urban Lifesavers whilst out for a jog in Perth of June 2015. His beautiful wife and children have their dad and husband home and the team that revived him are true urban lifesavers. Defib First welcomes and thanks the support of Jason and his family for getting behind this important cause and encouraging people in our community to become Urban Lifesavers.
To support our Urban Lifesavers campaign as a community we need to make automated external defibrillators (AED’s) as common place as fire extinguishers and smoke alarms. More importantly, we need to give bystanders the confidence to use them. Ordinary people can take extraordinary action to save a life. Know how to use an AED and send someone home to their family.
