Defibrillator available to the public

Star 106.3 has a defibrillator for the general public to use in the event of sudden cardiac arrest.

*We are located at Level 1, 181 Sturt Street, Townsville and are open Monday to Friday.*

The Heart180 Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is designed to be used by anyone, with clear step-by-step voice instructions that can guide members of the public through the process.

Heart disease is a leading cause of death in Australia, with those who suffer a sudden cardiac arrest having a 6 per cent chance of survival in Australia. However early defibrillation can increase survival to 70 per cent.

The Defib is part of Star 106.3's ongoing commitment to providing a safer work environment and continuing to drive its commitment to being hyperlocal and supporting its local community.
