Oregon Legislature Now Requires AEDs in Larger Businesses

Oregon Legislature Now Requires AEDs in Larger Businesses

Beginning January 1, new AED legislation in Oregon will
require businesses to provide automated external defibrillators (AEDs). Oregon
Senate Bill 556 mandates the purchase of the defibrillators by “any place of
public assembly with a facility of 50,000 square feet or more and with at least
25 individuals present on a normal business day."

Many towns already have AEDs installed in public places. In
some communities AEDs are installed at City Hall, the post office, and in banks
around town. Many states are introducing legislation for AEDs in schools, dental offices, nursing homes, and other public
locations, as well as businesses.
