Defibrillator Mapping

Re: Public Defibrillator List for Co. Kerry


The Kerry PPN are delighted with all the feedback we have received regarding the mapping of Defibrillator’s in County Kerry.


Just to outline the history and process of this innovative project for all the PPN members.

The Kerry PPN  was contacted by the HSE | Community Engagement Officer | National Ambulance Service South with regards to undertaking this project and the PPN wholeheartedly agreed to undertake such a valuable worthwhile project.

The Kerry PPN designed the AED Locator form which the HSE | Community Engagement Officer | National Ambulance Service South signed off on and we quickly got to work capturing the information onto google maps.

We are delighted to say at all stages the , HSE | Community Engagement Officer | National Ambulance Service South was kept up to date on the progress and they were delighted with the way in which the information was captured on the map and how easily assessable it was to navigate  .

Subsequently all information was shared to the HSE | Community Engagement Officer  and it was acknowledged that the Kerry PPN had captured a substantial number of AED’s within County Kerry , which is fantastic news and so important to capture as much information as possible.


Huge thanks to the community groups who have completed the AED locator form, the mapping has  well and truly started. To view the map as it stands today, please visit www.kerryppn.ie


All information on the map is submitted by  community groups, it is important to remember that this is a live map and details of Defibrillators in the community may change and submissions and amendments from the public are welcome.
