Register your Defibrillator

A public access defibrillator

The Scottish Ambulance Service are encouraging businesses and communities to register their Defibrillator(s) with the Service. The Service would like as many Defibrillators to be made as publicly accessible (Eg. can be accessed by a member of the public when needed) to help save a life when a patient is in cardiac arrest. It is public perception that all Defibrillators are registered with the Scottish Ambulance Service, but this is not the case.

The Service is committed to increasing the number of known Public Access Defibrillators (PAD) (sometimes known as Automated External Defibrillator (AEDs)) sites within Scotland and it is important that we know where these are located and that they have been registered.

Register your PAD/AED

This information will be used by our Ambulance Control Centres when they receive a 999 call for a cardiac arrest. Using the information that you have supplied, our Call Takers will signpost the caller to the nearest defibrillator. This will help increase the chance of survival of the person who is having a cardiac arrest.
