Locations of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) shown on the Tartu City Map
22 October / Starting today, it is possible to see the locations of Automated External Defibrillators on the Tartu City Map.
These locations are marked with a heart shaped icon, and by clicking on the icon additional information will appear along with a description of the device’s location.
According to Deputy Mayor Mihkel Lees, it is a priority for the City of Tartu to raise the life-saving capability of Tartu residents. ‘We have contributed on a consistent basis to first aid training for children and adults, installed AED devices in public establishments, and also consolidated information about the locations of AED devices installed by institutions and enterprises.
It is my hope that the map application, which was opened today, will help to raise the level of awareness of Tartu residents regarding possibilities for resuscitation and will be of help to the Emergency Response Centre, if the need should arise to guide people in providing aid,’ said Lees.
The map application is constantly being updated, and data will be renewed based on how information is received about the devices located in the urban space. ‘Information is definitely awaited from those enterprises engaged in the sale and installation of AED devices, and enterprises that have a resuscitation device and would like to include it on the map. We also await information from city residents who notice an AED device in an establishment that has not been entered on the map,' said Piret Väljaots, Head of the Tartu City Government’s Department of Social Welfare and Health Care, encouraging Tartu residents to report the locations of resuscitation devices in the urban space.
Please send any information on AED devices to the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org, and if the establishment is willing, and all necessary information has been collected, the AED will be added to the Tartu City Map. We also await information on possible inaccuracies and errors involving the map application.
