Your organization has AEDs. Great. Now what?
You’re committed to being prepared for sudden cardiac arrests at your locations.
So then, do you ask yourself
How many AEDs should we have
for our locations?
Where should AEDs be placed
in our buildings?
How will people quickly find an AED
during a medical emergency?
Can the same people

Who on our staff
needs to be trained
and who will manage our AEDs
Are we properly inspecting and maintaining
Do we need medical direction
and where will we get it?
You might also be wondering…
Are there legal requirements for having and using our AEDs:
Are there any standards and laws
we must follow?
Can we get sued in court
if something goes wrong?
How can we show we are compliant
with standards and laws?
All great questions. We hear this all the time.
Readiness Systems can help.

It’s a set of policies that prepare your organization to help a person who is having a cardiac arrest.
These policies help organize the people, systems, equipment and activities of an AED program.
Why do you need an AED program?
It’s simple. To:
Help save someone’s life
if they have a cardiac arrest
when cardiac arrest happens
Reduce the risk
of getting sued if something goes wrong
