In the community Defibrillator FAQs Defibrillator programme Hearts Together Provide Defibrillators for Communities, Clubs, Schools and Organisations Across Devon and Cornwall A defibrillator is a machine which restarts the heart in the event of a cardiac arrest. If a defibrillator is used within 3 – 5 minutes of cardiac arrest, survival rates jump from 6% – to 74%. A defibrillator could save your life. A semi automated LIFEPAK CR2 defibrillator costs £1,959.60 and a fully automated LIFEPAK CR2 £2,062.80 however the fundraising that Hearts Together undertake enables us to contribute towards this cost to ensure that as many defibrillators as possible are placed in our communities. We ask that where defibrillators are being placed for full public access, organisations pay from £500 towards the cost and where defibrillators are not publicly accessible that organisations pay from £1000 toward this cost. For more details please read our Frequently Asked Questions Click HERE to request your defibrillator!
