State laws and codes for AEDs and defibrillators in the state of Connecticut are now readily available on our new Resources page on AEDs Today.
The laws and requirements for AEDs and defibrillators vary from state to state, so it's crucial that individuals in charge of an AED program readily familiarize themselves with the laws that apply to AEDs in their state. As is the case for most states, the laws and statutes pertaining to AEDs apply to purchasing, maintenance, medical oversight, and more.
Broken down in everyday terms, every AED program in Connecticut should make sure to incorporate the following in their program:
1.) Have a medical doctor oversee your program (commonly referred to as 'Medical Oversight')
2.) Have a written safety plan.
3.) Adhere to manufacturer's maintenance requirements and regularly test the AED.
Other requirements are also in place in Connecticut, such as keeping monthly records of the maintenance of the AED. Important clauses and statutes have been highlighted in red for your convenience.
For those that want to avoid the high cost of locating a physician to oversee their program, AEDs Today can readily provide the required medical oversight via our AED Concierge Service. This service ensures your AED program is fully compliant with all Connecticut state and statutes.
