All Metro stations are supposed to be equipped with automated external defibrillators, lifesaving devices that can shock a person's heart back into a normal rhythm. But as one advocacy group recently pointed out, some aren't in the public boxes marked "Emergency Defibrillator."

A great blog post by Sabrina Wilber of the Metropolitan Transit Advocacy Group, a recently launched group focused on Metro rider safety and representation started in part by Chris Barnes of Fix WMATA, first raised the issue.'
