EBCF-AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATORS (AED'S)
AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATORS (AED’S)
The RSU #11 School Board recognizes that from time to time medical emergencies may arise that warrant the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED). MSAD #11 may acquire one or more AED’s for use in its schools and at school athletic events.
The Superintendent shall be responsible for developing, in consultation with the school physician or other qualified experts, and in accordance with the manufacturers’ instructions, protocols for the use, storage, location, testing and maintenance of the school unit’s AED’s, and for the identification of school personnel who should be trained in the use of an AED.
Although the RSU #11 School Board authorizes the acquisition of AEDs, it cannot and does not guarantee that an AED or a person trained in its use will be available at any particular school site or school-sponsored event.
(NOTE: The AED law, 22 MRSA § 2150-C, as amended, provides immunity from civil liability for damages relating to the use, possession or purchase of an AED and arising out of acts or omissions relating to preparing for and responding to suspected sudden cardiac arrest emergencies absent gross negligence or willful or wanton misconduct for any person or entity acquiring, maintaining, using, prescribing, or providing instruction in the use of an AED.)
