Automated External Defibrillators are portable lifesaving devises that deliver an electric shock through the chest to the heart to revive victims of sudden cardiac arrest. All of the Metroparks Ranger vehicles are equipped with AEDs for quick response. Rangers are dispatched through the countywide 911 system.
Members of the Volunteer Trail Patrol and the Metroparks staff are trained in first aid/CPR, including the use of AEDs.
