Delaware AED Law - House Bill 430 (HB 430)

The State of Delaware has enacted an AED Law that protects owners of an AED when the guidelines set forth in the law have been followed.  The Delaware AED Law states the following:

"(1) each prospective defibrillator user receives appropriate training by the American Red Cross, the American Heart Association, Delaware State Fire School or by another nationally recognized provider of training for cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and AED use; provided however, that such training shall be approved by the State EMS Medical Director;

(2) the defibrillator is maintained and tested according to the manufacturer's guidelines; and

(3) any person who renders emergency care or treatment on a person in cardiac arrest by using an AED shall notify the appropriate EMS units as soon as possible, and report any clinical use of the AED to the appropriate licensed physician or medical authority."

The owner of the AED must receive training on how to properly perform CPR and how to utilize the AED.  Training should be provided to several staff members to ensure that if there is an emergency that there will be responders who are prepared for the emergency. 

The AED must be properly maintained according to the manufacture's guidelines.  Each manufacture requires that pads and batteries be replaced according to the expiration date.  The expiration date will vary from manufacture to manufacture.
