Devon Air Ambulance delivers time-critical care thanks to your support. But you can help support our patients even before we arrive at a medical or trauma incident.

We attend hundreds of patients every year, a great number of which are cardiac incidents. Read the facts about cardiac incidents we attended in 2021.

Every day, defibrillators allow members of the public to become life savers when it is most unexpected. We want to help you to become more confident in using a defibrillator that is based in your local community by offering you the chance to boost your confidence with training delivered by our clinical team.

Cardiac arrests account for over a third of the incidents we attend. But our local research reveals that two thirds of people surveyed do not feel confident using a defibrillator should they need to. Your early intervention can really help to make a difference.

We are rolling out a series of CPR and defibrillator training events to help boost confidence in communities so that more people can learn the skills we hope they will never need.
