AED Spotter Network

Delivered in partnership with our registered charity, The MedAid Services Community Initiative, the AED Spotter Network is a new initiative dedicated to bringing like-minded people together to hunt-out, find and record public access defibrillators (AED’s) across the UK.

How Does it Work?

The AED Spotter Network is made up volunteers (called “spotters”) who keep an eye out for publically accessible AED’s in their local areas and while out and about.

When a spotter comes across an AED, they check our database to see if it’s listed. If not, they report its location so it can be added.

As well as spotters, we also have reviewers and approvers. Reviewers are prompted to review and check information held on AED’s within a set range of their home/work location. This helps us to keep an accurate and up-to-date database by utilising local knowledge.

Approvers check newly submitted AED’s to make sure we comply with our policies and do not end up creating spam reports or duplicated locations.

We also have Data Validators. We have thousands of records and information to review, verify and update to ensure our database is as up-to-date as possible.

 

Linking with Ambulance Services

Once we have recruited plenty of volunteers and verified our database of AED’s, we are hoping to be able to share our information with Ambulance Services.

This will allow Ambulance Services to identify public accessible AED’s not currently on their system and also share information back with us.

More to come on this in the near future!
