Why is it important for you to be at FM EXPO this year of all years?

ZOLL Medical are the global market leaders in the development, manufacture and distribution of AED’s (Automated External Defibrillators) and are keen to forge relationships with potential business partners and customers alike within the Middle East and particularly the UAE. Cardiac Arrest kills many thousands of people indiscriminately in the region each year and facilities should ensure that their premises are prepared for such events. Survival from cardiac arrest is generally very poor where there is no accessible AED and can increase dramatically if there is such a provision accompanied by people trained in its use and CPR.

How do you expect to spend your time on the show floor?

Seeking potential business partners and end customers, demonstrating ZOLL AED’s.

How will your products/solutions advance the local industry?

The DHA is embarking on trying to make Dubai a heart safe city, however public funds are always very limited, ZOLL’s innovative AED’s are relatively inexpensive to buy and we would be happy to discuss opportunities with local facility management organisations to help the DHA achieve their aims.

What projects in the past/present/future are you particularly proud or excited about?

ZOLL have provided AED’s to many organisations in Dubai, The Dubai International Airport, DAFZA, Dubai Police, Dubai Ambulance to name a few, we are also excited about the potential opportunity to work with the DHA on their Heart safe city project.
