AED Location Map and Program Information
California State University, Chico has made the commitment to help increase survival rates of persons who are stricken with sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) by placing publicly accessible Automated External Defibrillators (AED) at numerous locations on Campus. We have chosen Cardiac Science Powerheart G3 Plus AED or the Powerheart G5 Plus AED units for their ease of use and advanced rescue technology. The newest units are Powerheart G5 Plus AED which features bi-lingual capability (English-Spanish) at the touch of a button. Both the G3 and the G5 are fully automated and will guide users throughout the emergency with both verbal and written prompts. No special skills or training is required to save a life. Please refer to the links below for additional information and user demonstrations of the Powerheart G3 Plus and the Powerheart G5 Plus AEDs.
The CSU, Chico AED Program has been established and managed in accordance with the California Health & Safety Code, Section 1797.796, and meets the guidelines set forth by the American Heart Association and the American Red Cross. The program has also received an endorsement from our base Hospital, Enloe Medical Center, and has been approved by the regional EMS agency authority, Sierra-Sacramento Valley Emergency Medical Services.
