The AED Law Center may not contain all laws potentially applicable to AED programs and people or to every situation. Nor does this resource include potentially applicable local laws. We’ve made good faith and diligent efforts to include those state laws believed to be most useful to AED program managers and others interested in this issue but it is possible we may have missed some.

AED LAW FRAMEWORK

By way of background, AED laws exist in every state but every state’s laws are different. AED laws and legislation address one or more of the following three subject areas. Not all states address all subject areas.

  • Administrative and operational requirements: A description of the things you must do to administer and operate your AED program. Such as: maintain AEDs, train people, receive medical direction, report to agencies, and more. 
  • Good Samaritan immunity: Legal protections that may (or may not) be available for your organization and people when reasonably trying to help someone having cardiac arrest.
  • AED placement mandates: A list of the types of organizations that must have AEDs. Such as: health clubs, schools, high-populationbuildings, and others.
