Staying Alive Australia was established in 2009 by a group of Intensive Care Paramedics from Melbourne who identified a need for enhanced First Aid Solutions for businesses.
After attending hundreds of cardiac arrests in the community, we saw an opportunity to improve the quality of first aid services to businesses. We achieve this by providing total First Aid packages including consulting on an organisation’s first aid requirements, AEDs, accredited First Aid courses, and ongoing monitoring / maintenance.
All of our trainers are professional paramedics who have extensive experience with real life emergencies in the community.
With over 70 years of combined experience in the health front line, we have an intimate understanding of what is required to save lives, increase workplace safety and create a safer community.
More than 30,000 Australians die from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) each year.
Early defibrillation with a device such as an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) has been demonstrated to be the most effective method of saving a person from SCA. The chances of survival from SCA decrease by approximately 10% for every minute that passes before defibrillation.
Staying Alive offers business and organisations complete packaged AED solutions that are unmatched by any other provider.
Solutions to suit businesses requiring a single machine to large corporations requiring 100s of devices with their own oversight systems, and even businesses requiring a light weight portable device. An AED program is more than purchasing a device.
Staying Alive offers a range of First Aid Courses to provide your staff with the skills and knowledge to manage first aid situations.
Our courses are developed and taught by professional paramedics with many years of hands on experience.
How many times has your current first aid trainer performed CPR or defibrillated a real person? How many times has you current first aid trainer treated a child with anaphyaxis?
Our partnership with RTO no: 3981 allows us to provide nationally accredited courses.
We specialise in tailored training courses at your premises or ours. We provide re-accreditation reminders to ensure you keep your training up to date together with providing on-going support for participants.

Just a thank-you note. I have attended over the years a number of first aid sessions. I was fearing the 6 hour session would be 6 hours of boredom with a hopeless speaker. How wrong I was!! The speaker kept us awake and involved...and entertained which also helped. And through those techniques we learnt (or revised) a lot. He said that he wouldn't be the speaker next time( because of the boredom factor) but if you ever arrange a first aid session for another group of people I thoroughly recommend getting the same guy back.

I would like to thank you and your colleagues from Staying Alive for the tremendous support you have provided to the Rupertswood Football Club. Your advice and assistance in supplying an AED was greatly appreciated, and the CPR and AED training session was outstanding and extremely valuable for all who attended.

The team at Staying Alive don’t just provide a product such as a defibrillator, they really do provide a complete package including everything needed to optimise the effect of owning a defibrillator.
Matt Cronin, President, Research Junior Football Club
The is an open letter expressing our gratitude to the fantastic people at Staying Alive. In March 2011 one of our young players Vinny Bonanno collapsed..and tragically passed away. Staying Alive donated a Schiller defibrillator and training to our club in honur of Vinny. The training was easy to understand and covered all aspects of the operation of our new defibrillator...If anyone is looking into purchasing a defibrillator I recommend these great people and their state of the art products.
Chris Maclagan, Silvan Football Club President
Wow, I have had first aid & medical training in the past but never small group sessions by practicing paramedics. This is real time and practical, every day first aid training and support. I would recommend anyone that wants to be able to just do something in a crisis situation, to book a training session with Staying Alive.
