EHS suggests that department heads notify employees in their building at least annually, where the nearest AED is located. All employees should be familiar with emergency procedures, which include medical emergencies. Department heads shall have a sufficient number of employees trained in CPR/AED if their building contains an AED. Trained personnel will be present when the building is open. Refresher training and record keeping are mandatory.
CPR and AED courses are available locally through the American Red Cross, the American Heart Association or other programs recognized by the Tennessee Emergency Medical Services Board. Please see the AED Safety Program in the Safety Manual for more details.
A map of AED locations is hosted on the UTK maps site. This map has many layers that can be activated by selecting them from the menu.
