Emergency Services + Access to Local AED



Some years ago the Oxley Community installed a AED or AUTOMATIC EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATOR directly at the back of the Oxley Shire Hall (refer photos below) for use by the public in an emergency.

  • A defibrillator is a device that uses electricity to re-start the heart or shock it back into a normal rhythm.
  • Automated external defibrillators (AED) are usually found in public spaces and can be used by anyone.
  • Defibrillators can be used on people who need CPR, such as someone who has had a sudden cardiac arrest.
  • If you think someone is having a cardiac arrest, call triple 000, begin CPR, and use an AED as soon as possible.
  • For more information regarding AED’s refer to Health Direct website.

Note: If someone is unresponsive or not breathing dial triple zero (000) and ask for an ambulance.

Note: Refer to Health Direct for more information regarding AED’s.
