City of Upper Arlington, Ohio

AED Program

One of the goals of the Fire Division is to increase the number of publicly accessible automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in our community. Research has shown that intervention with an AED is as important as CPR in treating a victim of cardiac arrest. The division has partnered with other community organizations to raise public awareness of this subject. Through private and public donations, AEDs have been placed in schools, the Senior Center, Municipal Services Center, the Northam Park Tennis Courts, Public Services Center, the Amelita Mirolo Barn, at city swimming pools, in Fire Division staff vehicles, and in police cruisers. In addition, private businesses have purchased AEDs for their sites, including Scioto Country Club, the Swim & Racquet Club, the OSU Golf Course, churches, and physicians' offices.

Please call 614-583-5110 if you are interested in AED training, or would like to support the purchase of AED units in other public locations.
