AEDs are medical devices that can help save lives in the event of cardiac arrest. When necessary, they send an electric current to the heart to help it reset itself from an ineffective rhythm.
AEDs may be used by any Cast Member or Guest in response to a cardiac emergency. No training or certification is required. The device will prompt the user with step-by-step verbal instructions. All AEDs deployed at Walt Disney World Resort are suitable for use on adults and children. Mobile security units and recreation lifeguards are also equipped with AEDs.
See your Guest guide map for icons denoting AED locations or visit Guest Services. You can also ask a Cast Member. AED units are housed in cabinets similar to those used to house fire extinguishers and display the AED symbol.
In the event of a cardiac emergency, have a Cast Member call 911. You can also dial 911 from any phone.
