Register a PEI Defibrillator

Any community or organization with an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) for public use is encouraged to register the life-saving device with Health PEI Emergency Health Services. The AED registry allows emergency responders to quickly locate  the closest defibrillator  when someone calls in a sudden cardiac arrest. Using the online database, a 9-1-1 dispatcher can direct the caller or bystander to retrieve the nearest device and instruct its use until paramedics arrive.

Quick access to a defibrillator combined with CPR increases the chance of survival.

Does a registered AED have to be accessible 24-hours a day?

No, you can identify when your AED will be accessible to the public in the “availability” section of the registration form. Should a sudden cardiac arrest occur near your AED and outside of the accessible hours that you have identified, your device will not display as an available AED to a 911 operator.

Please note: The online database also records AED manufacturing and expiry information to help ensure all devices registered in PEI are properly maintained and up to date. For more information, read PEI Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Registry. (Link to PEI Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Registry.)

  • Primary contact information
