Community Program

Defib in Your Street

A St John Ambulance Victoria initiative creating the safest places in Australia to have a sudden cardiac arrest - 24/7 accessible defibrillators and free training

Defib in Your Street - a Free Program Currently Operating in the 3021 postcode (St Albans, Kealba, Kings Park, Albanvale)

This program is about creating the safest places in Australia to have a sudden cardiac arrest, which is one of the deadliest conditions. In 3021, we will:

  • Install 30 defibrillators so that no resident is more than 400 metres from a 24/7 available AED
  • Train free 5000 residents in CPR, either via accredited HLTAID009 Provide CPR training or non-accredited awareness, like CPR Lab or eLearning

Get involved in free training, fundraising or hosting a defibrillator:

St John first aid training - trainer and students

Free Education & Training

We’re giving away 1,500 free CPR courses and educating another 3,500 people in 3021. Get involved and learn how to save a life.

Host a Defibrillator on your property

We are placing defibrillators every 400m in our target suburb. Exclusively open to those in St Albans, Kealba, Kings Park and Albanvale currently - contact us to enquire about being a host. 

Did You Know?

  • The 3021 postcode (St Albans, Kings Park, Kealba, Albanvale) has the highest number of sudden cardiac arrests in Victoria
  • Before Defib in Your Street began, 3021 did not have any defibrillators available that you could use anytime of day or night
  • Most (80%) sudden cardiac arrests happen in the home, not at the shops or at work, leaving people like you too far from the help you need

What is Sudden Cardiac Arrest?

  • Over 7,300 sudden cardiac arrests occur in Victoria per year. 80% of these arrests happen in the home.
  • Sudden cardiac arrests have a low survival rate of 5% in Victoria
  • Only 1.5% of people that have sudden cardiac arrests receive bystander defibrillation
  • CPR within the first 6 minutes of sudden cardiac arrest, coupled with use of a defibrillator, increases the survival rates to as high as 70%.
