    **Delivery of AED familiarisation instruction during COVID-19 can be via online meeting platforms within 28 days of delivery.

Response For Life Approved AED Service Provider (Your Supplier), Defib Package Inclusions:

  1. Basic Package – AED (Defib) unit at minimal
  2. Standard Plus Package – Upgrade includes bag/case, rescue kit, child pads, AED signage, wall bracket
  3. Premium Package – Upgrade includes bag/case, rescue kit, child pads, AED signage, wall cabinet

RFL tip from our experience with past grant recipients : Select a Standard Plus (or Premium) Package if you require anything additional to the Defib unit (such as a wall bracket or cabinet for wall mounting the defib at the organisation premises). These packages are the most economical in this respect, rather than adding items after grant success and paying out of pocket.

NOTE: Quote available on request to ensure you get a suitable package for your club’s needs.
