Public Access AED header

What is an AED?
An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a lightweight, portable device that automatically analyses heart rhythms and determines if a shock is needed. AEDs are easy to use, safe and effective.

Early defibrillation is the standard of care for adult victims of sudden cardiac arrest. Everyone who has a duty to respond to victims of sudden cardiac arrest should be trained and equipped to defibrillate. Thanks to technological advances leading to the development of the AED, this goal has become easier to achieve.

Why should I register?
Missouri and Kansas both require owners of AEDs to register with local emergency medical services so that emergency communications and medical services personnel may be aware of an AED placement within their jurisdiction.

If you or your organization places an AED within the City of Excelsior Springs, completing the MARC's AED registration form fulfills your obligation of notification.

Excelsior Springs also has rules and regulations regarding AED registration. We have provided copies of its AED Ordinance, Public Access Defibrillator Program and AED Usage Report to aid organizations in the implementation and maintenance of their AED program in the forms section above.

How can I get training?
Only people who are trained should operate AEDs of perform CPR. CPR and AED training classes are available through Excelsior Springs Fire Department. For information on CPR or CPR and AED training call Excelsior Springs Fire Department at (816) 630-3000.
