The State of Wyoming has issued an AED Law that requires owners of an AED to adhere to certain regulations when owning the AED. The Wyoming AED Law states the following:
"(a) In order to ensure public health and safety, all persons who possess an AED shall:
(i)Obtain appropriate training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and in the use of an AED by the American Heart Association, American Red Cross or by another nationally recognized, or Wyoming department of health recognized, course in CPR and AED use and maintains currency through refresher training every two (2) years; and
(ii)Ensure that the AED is maintained and tested according to the manufacturer's guidelines;
(b) Any person or entity in possession of an AED shall notify an agent of the emergency communications center and the local ambulance service of the existence, location and type of AED."
Some of the basic guidelines when owning an AED is to properly maintain the AED by replacing the pads and batteries according to the manufacture's guidelines. Each manufacture has different expiration dates for the pads and batteries. To locate your manufacture's expiration dates, you can locate them in the user's guide for your AED.
Getting the organization's staff trained on how to effectively perform CPR and how to utilize an AED during an emergency prepares the staff for when an emergency arises.
