An AED should be available wherever medical treatment is more than 5 minutes away. Due to the rural nature of County Fermanagh, emergency services can take up to 10-30 minutes to attend remote locations, this can mean that cardiac arrest victims have a very small chance at survival.

The Killyfole and District Development Assocation working along side the Erne East Community Partnership, are attempting to map the locations of AED within County Fermanagh.  This map is currently a work in progress and errors/ommisons are very common.  Please help us improve the map by telling us about locations, access and where exactly the devices are kept.  You can use the Contact Us link on the left hand side of this page to get in touch.  The following link shows the current data on a map of County Fermanagh.
