The Office of Risk Management strongly encourages each location to acquire, properly register and maintain each AED unit. When weighing the importance of having an operational unit available, please consider the following:
Victims of cardiac arrest can be saved if an AED is available to deliver an electric shock and restore the heart to its normal patterned rhythm.
Under Maryland State law, COMAR 30.06.01-05, all locations having an AED unit must have a valid certificate for each AED unit prior to putting the unit into service. It is critical that all AED units are properly registered with the State. Failure to do so will result in the loss of critical civil immunities that are granted to those locations that comply by having properly registered units.
If you determine that your location has an AED unit which is not properly registered, please click here to the following reference in order to complete the registration process for the unit(s).
