Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs)

Information Regarding Implementation of Public Access Defibrillation in Schools

Reminder - Part of the legislation (Public Health Law Section 3000) requires certification of staff through an approved provider. The duration of this certification varies from provider to provider and is generally one or two years.  It is important that you check the certification expiration date(s) for your staff and arrange for recertification, when indicated.  In addition, it is important that your equipment and supplies be checked periodically to ensure that your units will function properly, if needed. Please alert the appropriate person of these requirements, if other than you.
