Wyoming AED Law - House Bill 19 (HB 19)

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.

Wyoming Good Samaritan Law - House Bill 19 (HB 19)

The State of Wyoming Good Samaritan Law has been enacted to ensure that any person that attempts to assist a victim in good faith during an emergency should be protected from liability.  The Wyoming Good Samaritan Law states the following:

"(a) Any person who uses or attempts to use an automated external defibrillator device on a victim of a perceived medical emergency, any prescribing physician who authorizes the purchase of the AED and any individual who provides training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in the use of an AED shall be immune from civil liability for any harm resulting from the use or attempted use of such device, unless the harm involved was caused by willful or criminal misconduct, gross negligence, reckless misconduct or a conscious, flagrant indifference to the safety of the victim who was harmed.

(b) Any person responsible for the site where the AED is located shall be immune from civil liability for any personal injury that results from any act or omission of acts that do not amount to willful or wanton misconduct or gross negligence if that person complies with the requirements of W.S. 35-26-102."
