Remember not all AEDs (automated external defibrillators) look alike, but they are all essentially the same…*get them to the scene, *open them up and they either start ‘talking you through’ the procedure or you have to press a ‘start button’ to get the verbal prompts to start.  Don’t be afraid to step up to help.  A person won’t have a chance if everyone stands back afraid to become involved!
 
AED’s save lives!
