NJ Senators Introduce Bill Protecting Good Samaritans Who Use AEDs

A bill, sponsored by New Jersey State Senators Bob Gordon (D-38 Fair Lawn) and Joseph F. Vitale (D-Middlesex) that would protect good Samaritans who use an automated external defibrillator (AED) while attempting to save someone‚Äôs life from civil liability was approved by the full Senate on Monday and is now scheduled for a vote in the Assembly on Thursday.  

The bill, S-852, would eliminate language in current law that requires that a person using an AED to have received training in both CPR and the usage of the AED.  The bill would also step down current requirements that entities require CPR and AED training for all people who might use the AED to just the people most likely to use the device.
