AED Support Services

Summit County Ambulance Service, in partnership with other community organizations, helped place nearly 200 automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in public places throughout Summit County. These devices, which can help save a life in the event of sudden cardiac arrest, are maintained by LifeMed Safety.

To learn more about AEDs and how to use them effectively, take an AED/CPR class offered by Summit County Ambulance Service. Call us at 970-668-4187 to find out when the next class will be held.
