Heritage Bank in Nanango has placed an automated external defibrillator (AED) for the use of the public in emergency situations on the wall of its branch.

The AED is inside an alarmed metal box secured to the wall and is available 24/7.

The life-saving device is also being monitored by CCTV to deter would-be thieves or vandals.

The unit has been supplied by Heritage Nanango Community Funding (HNCF) for the safety of the public.

It is located near the corner of Drayton and Fitzroy streets.

“It is placed between the entry door and the ATM. You can’t miss it really!” HNCF chair Wendy Zerbst said.

AEDs are simple for anyone to use.

The unit provides the instructions, and automatically assesses whether someone who is having an apparent heart attack is a candidate for a life-saving jolt.
