EHS AED Loaner Program

Do you have an upcoming not-for-profit event and would like to borrow an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)? The EHS AED Registry Program now has loaner AEDs for Nova Scotia.

Sudden cardiac arrest can happen at any time to anyone and it is important to be prepared. Early recognition, calling 9-1-1, performing CPR, and applying and using an AED will drastically increase someone’s chance of survival.

Here are some important facts about the AED Loaner Program

  • The event must not be for profit
  • The borrower must be 19 years of age or older
  • The borrower must be trained in CPR and AED use
  • The borrower must watch the “Learn CPR” and “Learn AED” videos embedded under the tab “CPR & AED Information”
  • The AED must be kept in the province of Nova Scotia
  • Although anyone can use the device, the borrower will be considered responsible for the AED while on loan
  • The AED must not be kept for longer than seven (7) days unless otherwise agreed upon with the AED Registry Program Coordinator
  • AEDs are available on a first-come, first-served basis
