The Alberta Public Access to Defibrillation (PAD) Program promotes increased survival from sudden cardiac arrest by encouraging communities and supporting the public to:

  • Make Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) available in publicly accessible areas
  • Register AEDs with the free AHS database
  • Share AED locations with 9-1-1 Emergency Medical Services Dispatch
  • Take Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) training
  • Use an AED at a medical emergency
