Where is your Automatic External Defibrillator (AED)?

Where is your nearest Automatic External Defibrillator (AED)? Could your workplace benefit from one?

In the UK there are over 30,000 cardiac arrests a year outside of hospital where the emergency medical services attempt to resuscitate the casualty; Less than one in ten causalities survive to be discharged from hospital (The British Heart Foundation). Defibrillation is the best way to treat a Cardiac Arrest; if defibrillation is achieved within the first three minutes the chances of survival increase to above 70%.
