The Central Western Daily has been able to pin down more than 15 defibrillators across the city, with most major sporting clubs or venues having one installed.
There are two installed at Waratahs, both up at Pride Park and Tiger Park, and one at Emus Rugby Club, and Duntryleague and Wentworth both have the devices installed.
Coles and Officeworks are among the businesses who have defibrillators in-store, while the numbers are steadily growing across the city.

Ten are located within the Orange CBD, including at the Orange Aquatic Centre, Officeworks, the Civic Theatre and two in Orange Central Square, while those further afield include two at Waratahs, one at the Orange District Antique Motor Club and one at Lake Canobolas.
Orange City Council sports and recreation committee chair, Jason Hamling said it was well and good to have defibrillators, which perform a potentially life-saving service, but many people didn't know where they were.
"They're very well-marked and easy to see when they're installed on a wall, but when an emergency happens do people know if there's one nearby?," he said.
"It could be something as simple as encouraging people to remember where they see one. Compiling a published list or keeping an app up to date would be another way forward."
