Automated External Defibrillators

Emory has a public access defibrillation program to deploy automated external defibrillators (AEDs) across the university’s campuses.  

CEPAR manages this program for the university, while Emory Healthcare manages its own AED program. 

The 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 (a 911 center).
