The Heart Foun­da­tion is ap­plaud­ing a new ini­tia­tive from a rental car net­work that will help fight heart dis­ease. Avis Rent A Car is the first rental car provider to in­stall life-sav­ing de­fib­ril­la­tors at 20 lo­ca­tions through­out New Zealand, in­clud­ing branches and ser­vice cen­tres. In recog­ni­tion of the coun­try’s grow­ing Asian pop­u­la­tion and boom­ing tourist numbers, a Chi­nese trans­la­tion for the in­struc­tions will sit along­side the new de­fib­ril­la­tors, which is also be­lieved to be a first for New Zealand. The 20 Avis lo­ca­tions from North Har­bour to In­ver­cargill will dis­play the recog­nised in­ter­na­tional sym­bol in­di­cat­ing that a de­fib­ril­la­tor is on­site.
