The Highland Perthshire Defib Locator App is now live and ready to download!

This life saving app which locates all the defibrillators in Highland Perthshire, was first realised by the pupils of Pitlochry High School. With help from HPCP and funding from the Friends of Pitlochry Hospital, this amazing app has now become a reality.

The computer and art classes have designed all of the icons and the ones you see here are just a few of their wonderful creations.

The database will be constantly updated so that people using the app can be secure in the knowledge that if they get into trouble, the information they connect to is accurate.

The app will be widely available for anyone who wishes to download it and the hotels and commercial establishments are happy to come on board. The app is free to download.

If you have a defibrillator and would like to be included in the app, please get in contact with:

Michella Samy at Freedom Personal Assistants on: 07977 222271    [email protected]

Coming soon for Apple devices at the Apple Store.

For other types of phone, and until the app is ready for download from Apple, you can access and use the Web App version.
