Defibrillator Finding Website Launched in UK

West Midlands, UK - A website has been launched in the West Midlands which lets people use a postcode or place name to find the nearest defibrillator in an emergency.

The Defib Finder website also gives directions to where the defibrillator is kept and a contact name.

West Midlands Ambulance Service, Safeheart UK, and the Community Heartbeat charity have spent three years developing the website.

It stores the locations of 2,500 defibrillators.

The website covers Birmingham, the Black Country, Warwickshire, Staffordshire, Shropshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

West Midlands Ambulance Service said it hoped the website would eventually hold a national database of locations.

The website is the first to be developed with the co-operation of an ambulance service, the spokesman added.
