Federal AED Laws

Federal AED Laws

The Federal Cardiac Arrest Survival Act was created to increase awareness of the importance of AEDs and to encourage their placement, availability and use in Federal buildings. If you want additional information, please read below and download document.In the year 2000, the Federal Cardiac Arrest Survival Act was signed by the President to recommend placement of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in Federal buildings and to provide Federal Good Samaritan protection for emergency responders who use AEDs.

It has been determined that the survival rate of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) victims can be increased by as much as 30 percent if an AED is available and used within a three to seven minute window. AEDs are safe to use and are effective when treating victims of sudden cardiac arrest even by lay people or those with only minimal automated external defibrillator training.

AED Brands encourages you to download and read the Federal AED Legislation information below. We hope that it will encourage all public gathering places, such as airports, golf courses, education institutions, health clubs, malls, etc. to implement AED programs.

Sudden cardiac arrest strikes more than 700 people per day in the U.S. Helping these SCA victims to not only survive, but to avoid brain damage, is AED Brands’ main goal. We hope it will become yours too!
