The purpose of this policy is to enhance the safety to guests, employees, and students at Florida State University (FSU) by providing oversight and guidance for the availability, maintenance, and proper use of Automated External Defibrillators or AEDs at FSU. This policy also outlines roles and responsibilities to ensure success and compliance with all applicable federal, state, and local requirements as they relate to AED use.
This policy applies to all AEDs that are deployed throughout the campus. For the purposes of this policy, all FSU owned AEDs are considered as either Public Accessible AEDs or Portable/Dedicated AEDs. Public Accessible AEDs are those units that are placed in wall-mounted boxes located in areas accessible to all building occupants and the general public. Portable/Dedicated AEDs are defined as those units that are carried from place to place by designated staff for dedicated purposes or those units that are located in areas that are not accessible to all building occupants and are not accessible to the general public.
