AED Replacement Parts Reimbursement

Automatic External Defibrillators are an important piece of equipment at any recreation facility. During November, Recreation PEI will be running a social media campaign highlighting AEDs, their suggested placement, maintenance reminders, and operational tips for both facility staff and the general public.

To help raise awareness of the life-saving devices among facility users (including staff, user groups and the general public), all member facilities are asked to share a photo of the location of your AED on your own social media during the campaign. Be sure to tag us @recreationpei on Facebook and/or Twitter. Make sure to take a wide-angled photo so users are able to tell exactly where the AED is located in the facility- a brief description will also help.

As an added incentive, members who share a photo are eligible to receive up to $200 in reimbursement on any AED related expenses- replacement pads or batteries or a new AED- purchased between January 1, 2021 and March 31, 2022 (proof of purchase required, while funds last).

  • Refer to the AED manual for guidance on when to order replacement parts. If you have any concerns about your device, contact your vendor.
  • Register your AED with the Provincial AED Registry. Information on the registry can be found here.
  • Read a blog post written by Heart and Stroke with some tips on AED use and placement, here.
  • Help promote AEDinformation and what to do in an emergency by sharing our other AED related posts during this campaign which will run from November 9-23!

Submit reimbursement requests to Recreation PEI. Only members who have shared a photo during the campaign are eligible. This is a first-come first served program with limited funds.

In the case of an emergency, an AED should be administered within 3-5 minutes. By sharing photos of the location your facility’s AED, you could help save a life.
