AED Program

Actsafe’s AED Program offers our members a great opportunity to equip their organizations and productions with an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) at a cost that will fit any budget. Actsafe offers two options: rental and purchase. If you or your organization is interested in learning more about how to use an AED, register for our Cardiac Arrest Management workshop.

Rental

This option makes an AED affordable to all types of short term projects in the performing arts and motion picture industries.  Actsafe will supply you with a AED, training for 2 of your staff members and manage all necessary maintenance and service when required.

To begin the rental process, please complete our rental form.

Due to supply chain issues, we have been unable to secure replacement batteries for some of our AED rental units. Therefore we are currently unable to fulfill any new AED Rental Requests until further notice.

Frequently Asked Questions

I haven't been trained to use an AED. Can I still use one safely if I think someone is in cardiac arrest?

Yes you can.

Firstly, if you suspect someone is in cardiac arrest, your first call should be for first aid and 911 for medical attention.  If you have an AED on site, it is safe to administer treatment with this device.  AEDs are fool proof.  If you place the AED on a person that is not in cardiac arrest, the unit will not allow you to administer a shock.

You can use an AED with no training whatsoever. And you can use an AED correctly with no training whatsoever... So it takes no training, no education. Its fool proof to use. So for most of us, the majority of Canadians, you don't need any certification.

Dr. Laurie Morrison, CBC Marketplace Blog, November 29, 2013.

These can be operated by anyone. Its got a voice command that tells you exactly what to do and the best thing is that its fool proof. If you put it on somebody and for some reason they are not going into cardiac arrest, you're not a medical professional, you don't know what's going on, it won't go off. So you can't accidentally shock somebody.

Erin Selby, Manitoba Health Minister, CBC Marketplace Blog, November 29, 2013.
