    I love the idea of them; we have them on all of the floors in the gov't building I'm working in right now...Sadly, some offices have stickers on the doors announcing the location of the AED, but the doors are locked

      That might change after a couple of doors are kicked in.
      I believe I speak for everyone here sir, when I say, to Hell with our orders.

        Beat me to it.

        "We need an AED..."

        "F--ker locked the door!"

        "... make dynamic entry."

          Sorry, these are some serious federal doors

          Doesn't mean I wouldn't do it, but I'd hate to write the report

            First off, who let that cat in here?

            Second, weapons fire is frowned upon in federal buildings, isn't it?

                Just think about it this way, would you rather have some broken ribs and be alive, or be dead? I'll take the broken ribs.
                CPR is only executed if a shock (or stack of shocks) is contra indicated or unsuccessful.

                  I know. Hopefully I'll never have to find out.

                    On top of that, they have ones that can mount to the wall for anyone to use. When you remove it from the wall an alarm sounds and the AED is ready for use. They're built for something like an 8th grade comprehension level.

                      DT4EMS and several other folks, if I remember correctly, recommended the AHA course as well. (If I remembered wrong, I'll have to update.)

                        Anyone using an AED in Wisconsin must be certified as a professional First Responder. We'll, if we can afford it (I am no longer alone in monetary decisions, but I can't say much more about it yet), will look into First Responder for our patrol officers, and of course any client that wants that level of responder on site.
