Emory AED Program
Emory University is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all faculty, staff, students, and visitors to our campuses. Emory established a Public Access Defibrillation (PAD) program in support of this commitment.
Emory's new campus-wide Public Access Defibillation (PAD) Program has deployed Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) across the University's campuses. The Office of Critical Event Preparedness and Response (CEPAR) will manage this program for the University while Emory Healthcare will manage its AED program separately.
Use of AEDs will be in compliance with the responsibilities and procedures outlined in this program and consistent with guidelines outlined by the laws of the State of Georgia. This program applies to all individuals who respond in good faith in accordance with Georgia’s Good Samaritan Law, CPR trained responders, and those responders who act in good faith with guidance from Emory Police Dispatchers (404.727.6111) or a Dispatcher from a Public Safety Access Point (911 Center).
