Cumberland Rescue seeking help creating list of public AEDs

CUMBERLAND – The Cumberland Rescue Service is creating a registry of automated external defibrillators (AED) in public and commercial buildings in town, including churches and other buildings where people gather.

The Rescue Service says the database will allow it to assist AED owners in keeping up to date with manufacturer-required software updates, defibrillator pad expiration dates, preventative maintenance and CPR training. It hopes that in the future, the registry will allow the specific location of AEDs to be provided to people who call 911 when someone may be experiencing cardiac arrest.

Individuals or organizations that would like to participate in the registry can email AEDregistry@cumberlandri.org . Contact John Pliakas, director of the Cumberland Rescue Service, at 401-334-3090 ext. 2 for more information or with questions.
