Ambulance Victoria 
5 - 10pm, Candy Cane Lane

Visit the Ambulance Victoria team on site and learn more about the Call Push Shock and Good Sam Programs.  

In partnership with the Heart Foundation, Ambulance Victoria has designed and developed a new cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automatic external defibrillator (AED) practice kit. The Call Push Shock Kit builds confidence and capability to recognise a cardiac arrest and take the lifesaving action of calling Triple Zero (000), starting CPR immediately and shocking with an AED (if available).

GoodSAM is a smartphone app that links patients in cardiac arrest with nearby community members and life-saving public defibrillators following a Triple Zero (000) call. The technology aims to provide rapid assistance to patients in the critical minutes before emergency services arrive. As we know, these minutes are crucial to better patient survival rates.
