As AED’s become more prevalent across the country, a new problem is popping up. How do you know the AED you turn to will be in working condition?
There are few laws that govern the placement, training and maintenance of AEDs. Therefore, it is critical to have your own AED program in place.
- doing a site survey
- choosing the right AEDs for your location and budge
- having staff trained to use the equipment and to perform CPR
- employing an AED maintenance program
- register your AEDs with your local EMS, so they know where to find them on location
AED Maintenance Program
But when you turn to an AED for life-saving help, you’re also depending on it to work. What if the battery has died, or some other failure has occurred? For each minute defibrillation is delayed, the chance of survival is reduced approximately 10%.
What matters most is that your AED is ready to go when you need it. First Responder offers a complete maintenance program for every AED.
