Automated External Defibrillators

Philips Heartstart Defibrillators

Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are used in the event of sudden cardiac arrest. AEDs deliver a shock to resume the natural beating of the heart. In the event that the heart is beating or beating in a rhythm that is not able to be shocked, the AED is programed not to deliver a shock, which makes it safe for use in the general public.

Hutchinson Schools is fortunate to have 7 AEDs within the district.

Their locations are:

  • High School
    • near the auditorium
    • near the athletic training room
  • Middle School
    • near the office
    • near the gym
  • Park Elementary
    • near the office
    • near the science rooms
  • West Elementary
    • near the office

Funding for our AEDs was provided by Hutchinson Foundation for Healthcare, Stearns Family Foundation, Hutchinson Medical Center, 3M, Hutchinson Technology, Wells Fargo, and the Hutchinson School District and Parent, Teacher Organization.
