Locating your nearest defibrillator

AED Locations is a community-orientated volunteer project designed to make people aware of how many AEDs (automated external defibrillators) there are in New Zealand.

AED Locations aims to increase awareness by offering a website where individuals can locate the defibrillators in their local area, and by providing signage for display at these sites. In using this website’s data, the user must be aware that the presence of a location on the map:

  • Does not indicate an absolute right to use the AED
  • Does not indicate the AED is available for use 24/7
  • Does not indicate the AED is in full working order
  • Does not guarantee the location is geographically correct. You can help by alerting us via e-mail so we can correct data.

Civil Defence has released tsunami mapping for the region and identified a risk to parts of the GETBA area in the event of a tsunami.
