The Authority has recently revised its Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Program policy template. This template provides a foundation for an effective AED program and is available in the “Policy Templates” section of the Authority’s Resources and Documents library on cjpia.org. The template provides guidance to members on establishing training and standards for the use of AEDs by non-licensed or non-certified personnel. The template also includes an AED maintenance log/checklist.
The AED Program policy template, along with the Authority’s AHA Heartsaver First-Aid/CPR & AED Training, works to equip Authority members when faced with a sudden cardiac arrest situation. For questions regarding AED Programs, please contact your assigned Risk Manager.
