The Defibrillators for Sporting Clubs and Facilities Program provides Victorian sporting clubs with the opportunity to acquire an automated external defibrillator (also known as an ‘AED’) for their club or sports facility.
Successful applicants receive an Automated External Defibrillator package. The package includes a high quality defibrillator, some basic training and six years of essential maintenance. This package is delivered by a qualified contractor engaged by the Department of Health and Human Services.
Please note the anticipated delivery schedule for round five:
The first delivery period for eligible summer season sport and recreation applicants will commence in late 2018.
Deliveries to eligible winter season sport and recreation applicants will commence in February 2019.
Depending on the quantity of eligible applications received, the delivery scheduling for some round five applicants may need to be extended to June 2019.
