Together with Rapid 1st Aid, McDonald’s in the Macarthur region are bringing twelve lifesaving Automated External Defibrillators (AED) to local restaurants, showing their commitment to helping support the local community and increasing the safety of the area.
Sadly, around 25,000 Australians die every year from a sudden cardiac arrest - that equates to over 68 Australians each day. Many of these deaths would be preventable if a defibrilator was in reach.
The twelve defibrillators will be publicly accessible at McDonald’s restaurants in the region. Not only will McDonald’s staff be trained and prepared to help, but any member of the general public will be able to access them inside or outside the restaurant.
The defibrillators can be found at the following restaurants: Rosemeadow, Glenquarie, Campbelltown, Eaglevale, Minto, Woodbine, Gregory Hills, Spring Farm, Narellan, Emerald Hills, Mount Annan and Camden.
