Ten new Automated External Defibrillator stations which are used used to help people having a sudden cardiac arrest, will be installed around Gozo after an agreement was signed with Malta Cadets.
The joint project was launched by Minister for Gozo Clint Camilleri on Thursday.
During the launch, Camilleri explained that the eight existing stations will be upgraded and serviced for five years.
In a bid to increase awareness on AEDs, the general public and employees within the ministry will also benefit from certified First Aid training courses as well as courses on how to use AEDs.
Malta Cadets secretary general Etienne Micallef underlined the importance of having such equipment available. He also showed those present on how to make use of it.
