The call has been issued by the South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS) which says the kit can prove the difference between life and death for anyone suffering a heart attack.
The easy-to-operate defibrillators are there to be used by anyone in an emergency and display simple instructions as well as an intelligent automatic system that will only produce a shock when there is no detected heartbeat.
In the UK approximately 30,000 people suffer a heart attack outside of a hospital, with a patient's chance of survival decreasing by about 10 per cent per minute.
The SCAS said it is willing to advise organisations on how receive funding for a defibrillator, which costs up to £1,850 excluding fitting charges, by directing them to grants and community fundraising schemes.
The SCAS has also recommended museums, parish councils and arts centres for defibrillator installation.
