AEDs in Schools / Donations

AEDDouglas County School District (DCSD) accepts Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) donations to serve our students.

Senate Bill 05-170 states that the District shall accept any AED that meets the standards established by the Federal Food and Drug Administration. Please note that each manufacturer’s AED has different training units, batteries, electrodes and maintenance schedules. In order to best manage our AED program, we ask that you please consider purchasing the Philips HeartStart Onsite AED in order to provide consistency across the District. The Douglas County School District has contract pricing in place with Emergency University, 866-AED-HELP (233-4357). As per the District’s AED policy, all AEDs should come with a spare set of adult electrodes, infant / child electrodes, CPR response kit, carrying case and wall cabinet.

We do ask that the District be notified one month in advance of any plan to add an AED to a site so that the staff at the location receives the proper training prior to the unit’s arrival. If you would like your donation to be considered for a specific purpose or location, please specify that in writing to Risk Management. Each request will then be reviewed by the Medical Control Committee, which determines the location with the greatest need while taking into account your location request.
