Who is eligible?

The Saving Lives Foundation wants as many AEDs as possible to be made available, in order to increase the chance of survival in cases of cardiac arrest.

We do not provide money to successful applicants, instead you will have a brand new AED delivered directly to you.  Further information can be found here.

Any AEDs donated by the Foundation must be placed outside. The devices must be accessible to everyone, 24 hours a day.

The applicant authority must ensure that the donated AED is maintained for 10 years and that batteries and electrodes are replaced when necessary, to ensure that the AED is always in full working condition and ready to be deployed if needed.

If for any reason it is no longer possible for the recipient to keep their AED maintained according to the above conditions, the AED can be taken back by the Foundation, in consultation with yourselves. The AED will then be re-donated to another organisation.

The applicant organisation guarantees that the AED will be made available and rescue-ready, as soon as possible after any emergency deployments. We further request that the applicant authority has no profit intentions and can provide evidence that they have been operational for a minimum of 2 years.  The applicant authority and the AED should be located within Europe,  the operating area of the Saving Lives Foundation.
