Old fones for new lifesaving defibrillators

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a condition in which the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating. When this happens, blood stops flowing to the brain & other vital organs. SCA causes death within minutes. Rapid treatment of SCA with a defibrillator can be lifesaving. A defibrillator is a device that sends an electric shock to the heart to try to restore its normal rhythm. Started in 2010 Fones4life encourages recycling old mobiles. Helping communities install defibrillators, storage & training people to save lives.

Over 200 schemes are fundraising through Fones4life recycling programs. Schools, sports clubs, businesses & local groups.. make Heartsafety a reality all over Ireland.
