Due to the inspiration of Karen Downs, Effort has been blessed with three Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), useful in the event of sudden heart attack. The AEDs are located in the Sanctuary, FLC, and Office buildings. Diagrams and pictures below show the locations. Each is in a box which has an alarm when the box is opened. If the AED is needed, IGNORE THE ALARM!

While the AED provides complete verbal instructions on how it is to be used and it will not allow itself to be used improperly, it is useful to understand ahead of time how to use it. The video at provides a useful overview of its use. While the entire video is 30 minutes long and covers many situations, from the 10 minute mark and watching for a minute and a half, you will understand the basics.
