Missouri AED Laws and Legislation
Find out more about Missouri AED laws and pending Missouri AED legislation. Learn what legislators in Missouri are doing to mandate state requirements for the placement of AEDs, including laws to protect organizations that purchase an AED.
An AED Law can empower individuals to train and be prepared to use an automated external defibrillator to save lives. Good Samaritan laws can protect those who use an AED to help a victim. State AED laws that mandate AED installation in proportion to the population of a public facility could increase survival rates.
Research shows that the availability of an automated external defibrillator (AED) in schools, hotels, recreation and sports facilities, assisted living communities, public buildings, high rises, businesses, and communities, dramatically increases the survival rate for a victim of sudden cardiac arrest.
