The goal is to have an AED located so that it can be reached and deliver a shock within three minutes. The placement of AEDs is usually determined by the size of your facility. Often, one AED is enough but if your facility is spread out or on several floors of a building, more than one may be recommended.
The price varies by make and model. Most AED’s cost between $1,100 and $2,000. The Fire Department is partnering with several vendors to obtain the best price available for businesses interested in implementing an AED program. Please contact the Fishers Fire Department for more info.
