Automated External Defibrillators (Action First Aid)

Action First Aid is offering GBA members a substantial discount on their HeartSine Samaritan 350P Automated External Defibrillator (AED) package. Action First Aid offers excellent after-sales support & information, and will travel to the Bay to provide informative presentations/training sessions for your association if requested.

Action First Aid is offering GBA Members their HeartSine Samaritan 350P Defibrillator bundle for $1,358 (+HST). This package includes everything you need for the home or cottage and features:

    • HeartSine Samaritan 350P Defibrillator
    • 8 Year Manufacturer Warranty
    • AED/CPR First Aid Kit
    • AED Tracking & Full Customer Support
    • Video Training Resources
    • 4 year Pad and Battery Pack
    • FREE pad replacement if the AED is used in an emergency
    • $100 credit towards a group ‘Shock on the Dock’ training session
    • Pay it Forward: If a life is saved with this AED we will donate an AED to an organization of the survivors choice

Every second counts!  Especially in remote cottage locations where emergency response services are often not as available. The reality is without a defibrillator (AED) the chance of surviving sudden cardiac arrest is almost zero. Every minute that goes by, the chance of survival drops 10%. Sometimes we only have 10 minutes to save a life. The good news is, AEDs are very easy to use and belong everywhere – home, work and cottage! Action First Aid is helping businesses and home owners across Canada establish strong AED programs. Their experienced staff will help you from start to finish – choose the right machine, provide exceptional training, and track your pads and batteries.
