USE OF AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATORS (AED’s) &
CARDIOPULMONARY RESUSCITATION (CPR)
The MSAD #60 School Board recognizes that from time to time medical emergencies
may arise that warrant the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED). MSAD #60
may acquire one or more AED’s for use in its schools and at school athletic events.
MSAD #60 will offer training to students on performing cardiopulmonary
resuscitation (CPR) in accordance with such rules as may be adopted by the Maine
Department of Education, and may require training for those school unit personnel who have
been identified by the Superintendent, in consultation with the school physician, as needing
such training to effectively carry out their job responsibilities.
The Superintendent shall be responsible for developing, in consultation with the school
physician and school nurse and in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions, protocols
for the use, storage, location, testing, and maintenance of the school unit’s AEDs and for
identification of school personnel who should be trained in the use of an AED.
Although MSAD #60 School Board authorizes the acquisition of AEDs, it cannot and
does not guarantee that an AED or a person trained in its use will be available at any particular school site or school-sponsored event.
