Since 2008 all public buses in Davos have been equipped with an automatic external defibrillator (AED). This enables the bus driver and any other passenger to deliver first aid in the event of a sudden heart attack. "Heart safe buses" is a unique project in Europe. It sensitises the public and improves cooperation between novices and professional assistants due to the constant availability of defibrillators on public transport. "Heart safe Davos"is an initiative of Davos hospital and various partners.
