AEDs need maintenance
Did you know that 1 in 5 AEDs were found to be out-of-service, out-of-compliance, or not ready to rescue due to poor maintenance and oversight, according to AED 365? Are your AEDs prepared to save a life?
At Show Me CPR and Personal Safety, we would love to support your AED with a preventative maintenance plan to help prolong the lifespan of your AED, avoid unexpected repairs, minimize potential liability issues, and ensure your AED is ready to rescue should you ever need it.
In March 2021, Eric and I used our personal AED and performed CPR on our neighbor while we waited for first responders to arrive. By the time paramedics were loading him into the ambulance, he was awake and responsive!
Use the form below to perform an inspection
Is your AED beeping or chirping? Does it have a red blinking light? If so, it’s trying to tell you something!
While most AEDs run daily, weekly, or annual self-tests, it is still important to perform manual monthly inspections.
Whether you will be performing the manual inspection yourself or you would like us to perform the inspection, this form will easily guide you through the monthly AED inspection. Once submitted, we will compile an AED Inspection Report for your records.
Please allow up to 24 hours for that report to be completed and emailed to you.
