The Saving Lives Foundation wants as many defibrillators 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 defibrillator delivered directly to you. Further information can be found here.
Any defibrillators 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 defibrillator is maintained for 10 years and that batteries and electrodes are replaced when necessary, to ensure that the defibrillator 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 defibrillator maintained according to the above conditions, the defibrillator can be taken back by the Foundation, in consultation with yourselves. The defibrillator will then be re-donated to another organisation.
The applicant organisation guarantees that the defibrillator 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 defibrillator should be located within Europe, the operating area of the Saving Lives Foundation.
