Where is a good location to place my AED?
AEDs should be placed in an easily-accessible, highly visible location within 1½ – 2 minutes of any possible sudden cardiac arrest event. AEDs should be readily accessible and available everywhere. This includes schools, workplaces, sports clubs, retirement villages and especially your very own home. NEVER place an AED in a locked cabinet or in any location which isn’t freely accessible.
