Should I Carry a Defibrillator in My Caravan?
AEDs for Safer Caravaning
Are you into caravanning, and getting the van ready to go on an adventure? If you’re planning to hot the great outdoors, do you have everything you need to ensure you are prepared for an off-the-grid emergency?
Our team at First Aid Accident & Emergency are into Caravan’s and the outdoor lifestyle, we know how much fun caravanning can be. However, life on the open road puts you in some very remote locations and has its own risks. That is why we believe you should have a defibrillator and reliable first aid kit on board.
This advice is not solely for individual caravan owners but also caravan park operators – so much so that the Australian Government has put together a Caravan Park Defibrillator Subsidy Program to help caravan parks obtain a proper automatic defibrillator.
“Around the country each year, over 11 million Australians undertake a caravan and camping trip, with over 90% of these trips occurring in regional Australia. According to the Heart Foundation, over 40% of these people are considered a significant risk of a heart attack as they are aged over 55 years, have a low income and are located in regional Australia. This is in addition to the potential for incidents to occur with children around pools and roads.” – Caravan Industry Association of Australia
