AED Resource Map

Automated External Defibrillator (AED)

The purpose of the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) program is to ensure proper oversight, installation and maintenance of AED Units. An AED is used to treat victims who experience sudden cardiac arrest.  An AED is only to be applied to victims who are unconscious, not breathing normally, and showing no signs of circulation such as normal breathing, coughing or movement. An AED will analyze the heart rhythm and advise the operator if a shockable rhythm is detected. If a shockable rhythm is detected, the AED will charge to the appropriate energy level and deliver a shock.
