AED Program


DOWNTOWN CITY PARKSave Station-GuardianSaveStation is far more than an AED cabinet, it’s a public awareness program that is providing critical education about CPR and how to use an AED. With less than 10 minutes to save a life, we are highly dependent on the public to feel confident to take action in an emergency. Knowing where to go and what to do in the first few minutes is critical to save a life. SaveStation is committed to promoting widespread ACCESS, AWARENESS & EDUCATION.

The list above is where you can find AED units maintained by the City of Paso Robles, however there will continue to be many AED units available throughout the city inside businesses that desire to maintain AED units. Those locations are usually doctor's offices, physical therapy facilities, fitness centers, and theatres. Any location that houses many people at one time tends to participate in an AED program, having one available to the general public in the event that someone goes into cardiac arrest.

At any time, if any community members have questions regarding the use of an AED, please do not hesitate to contact the Department of Fire and Emergency Services.
