EBCF Automated External Defibrillators (AED's)
NEPN/NSBA Code: EBCF 

AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATORS (AED’S) 

The Board recognizes that from time to time medical emergencies may arise that warrant the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED). MSAD #4 may acquire one or more AED’s for use in its school and at school athletic events.

The Superintendent shall be responsible for developing, in consultation with the school physician, or other qualified expert and in accordance with the manufacturers’ instructions, protocols for the use, storage, location, testing, and maintenance of the school unit’s AEDs, and for identification of school personnel who should be trained in the use of an AED.

Although the Board authorizes the acquisition of AEDs, it cannot and does not guarantee that an AED or a person trained in its use will be available at any particular school site or school-sponsored event.
