Congratulations to the Maitland District Netball Association on successfully applying for and receiving one of the many Office of Sport NSW funding grants to equip their club with a defibrillator package from the Defibshop!


Club members came together one evening in May to be taken through Sudden Cardiac Arrest and how to use their defibrillator should the need arise. “Effectively, should a member of the club have a Sudden Cardiac Arrest at the venue now, their chances of survival are now possibly right up in the 70, 80 or even 90%+ range” said Carpet Hughes, Intensive Care Paramedic & Managing Director of the Defibshop.
