Automated External Defibrillators

Automated external defibrillators (AED) enable responders to deliver early defibrillation to victims in the first critical moments after a sudden cardiac arrest. This program provides guidance for the selection, placement, use, and maintenance of AEDs in Northwestern facilities and vehicles.

All AEDs subject to this program must be registered with, and approved by, Northwestern Environmental Health and Safety (EHS). Use the link below to request approval for new, replacement, relocation, registration, or removal of an AED.
