GC Council install defibrillators across the city

The Gold Coast City Council will install 12 defibrillators in various community centres and libraries across the city.

The first two machines have been installed at Helensvale and Robina today.

City Council will install the life-saving deceives from Helensvale to Coolangatta, with a total cost of $30,000.


Locations for all defibrillators can be found on the council’s website, and in the near future on the City’s mobile application.

Mayor Tom Tate is recommending business owners across the Gold Coast install a defibrillator at their workplace.

“I’m saying to business leaders throughout the coast put one in your organisation and get people trained up on how to use them,” he said.

“You never know, most CEO’s are older than their other employees, they might just save your own life.”

Each of the defibrillator cabinet’s will be alarmed and linked to the City’s security operations centre, who’ll be notified when a cabinet is opened.

Gold Coast City Council will also be delivering CPR awareness sessions for residents and community groups.

The next session is at Kirra Hill (May 8) and Upper Coomera (May 10).
