The Circuit

We’re supporting the British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) national defibrillator register, designed to help medical professionals and members of the public find their nearest AED in the event of a cardiac arrest. Remote First Aid has already registered its AED and is now calling on customers and instructors to do the same.

The Circuit

This BHF project, partly funded by the government, is named ‘The Circuit’. The service will link a UK-wide network of defibs to people who may need to use them using a website and online app. The project also helps AED owners by sending reminders about pad use-by dates and battery levels, so they can be sure the devices are always ready to save a life.

It will achieve its aim of connecting people with defibrillators across the UK during 2020 when it rolls out beyond its initial areas of operation – the West Midlands, Wales and Scotland. You can learn more, find our nearest defibrillator or register one here: www.thecircuit.uk

What is the British Heart Foundation?

The BHF is the UK’s largest independent funder of heart research. Its research has helped halve the number of deaths from heart disease in the country. Alongside these studies, they provide support for more than 7 million people living with these diseases. Visit www.bhf.org.uk for more information.
