A person other than an emergency medical technician or a first responder-defibrillation may use a semiautomatic defibrillator in rendering emergency care or treatment to an individual who appears to be in cardiac arrest if the person has received training in a course for which a physician serves as medical director and that is approved by the department.
Emergency University provides CPR and manufacturer specific AED training which is developed in accordance with the guidelines published by the American Heart Association and ILCOR (International Liaison Committee On Resuscitation). Emergency University's blended training program provides hands on practice and verification of CPR and AED skills.
A person who provides a semiautomatic defibrillator for use shall provide written notification to the nearest emergency medical services program. The notification shall include information as to the type of the semiautomatic defibrillator, the location of the defibrillator on the premises of the person and the intended usage area for the defibrillator.
