Projects

QP 2

The quarterly project on defibrillators has concluded and shows a visible uptick from before the project started. https://osm.mathmos.net/defib/history-stats.html

A part of the project did encourage people to encourage ‘guardians’ of AEDs to register or correct location of defibrillators to The Circuit. They have mentioned that they’ve noticed an increase in registrations. Whether this is coincidental or not is unclear, but is a benefit for all of us.

QP3

We’re a little late in announcing this but QP3 will be on stale data. This is checking/confirming data which may or may not be up to date.
