Gisborne Wainui Lions recently installed their 35th sign to indicate that an AED defibrillator for emergency use was available.

Genetic Technologies Ltd (Pioneer Seeds) in Lytton Road has become the latest location for the lifesaving device. Statistics show that when someone has a heart attack use of an AED defibrillator can increase their survival chances by up to 40 percent.

Without an AED, chance of survival is only 5 to 8 percent, even with CPR. AEDs are available at a number of businesses and other sites around the Gisborne region.

To find out where, look for the signs or download the free app from Apple Store or Google Play Store.
