THE Yorkshire Ambulance Service have launched an app which maps where defibrillators across the UK are located.

There are 1,288 automated external defibrillators (AEDs) across the county and The Save a Life app tells you the location of your nearest AED and provides cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) guidance in the event of someone suffering a cardiac arrest.

Paul Stevens, Head of Community Resilience at Yorkshire Ambulance Service, said: "This app plots all the AEDs so members of the public can familiarise themselves with the location of their nearest device.

However, the app should not be used in an emergency and In the event of someone suffering a cardiac arrest, you should still call 999."
