Here's how I look at it:

Someone collapse in town and it looks like a heart attack. I'm not the first person on the scene. 999 have already been called. I check my phone and see there's a defibrillator 200m away. I inform the person dealing with the casualty and I run to get it and bring it back to the casualty. I can run 400m faster than it takes for the ambulance. The defib gets used. 5 mins later the ambulance gets there and his life is saved because of the defib.

If I was first on the scene I would get one of the bystanders (admit it, there will be a few) to check on their phone if there is one nearby.

Also, by having them on the map it would make me more aware of where my local ones are too should it ever be needed. Off hand I know there is one just outside my local arts centre.

Also, we can bulk-add multiple POIs to the database, Richard wouldn't have to sift through them all one by one :D
