It is disheartening to know that a man who was struck by lightning at a golf course last year could have been easily saved by using an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
We read the story in the papers here.
It is encouraging to note however, that AEDs are easy to operate and more public areas and offices in Singapore are starting to include these life-saving devices. Just google "One year old using AED" and you can see why everyone including you have the power to save a life.
ShowNearby included a category called "AED" a few months ago in both our Android and iPhone mobile applications. These nearby AED locations are also available as a stand-alone app called ShowNearby AED on Android, with a similar one slated to release on the iPhone soon. As this information is critical in saving lives, we update the locations of new AEDs daily.
With this information, we hope to empower each and everyone of us to save lives.
