The City of Cottage Grove has multiple Automatic External Defibrillators at various locations in city owned buildings. There are also many AEDs located in public buildings around the city.

Please take time to look at the map below in order to familiarize yourself with where these AEDs are located.

A Brief History of AEDs:
They are used for a sudden cardiac arrest incident where the heart goes into Ventricular Fibrillation (a rhythm in the heart where no contractions happen) or Ventricular Tachycardia (a rhythm in which the heart is either beating or not but the electrical activity is going 2-4 times faster than what it normally should be) the AEDs are then used to reset the heart from these rhythms.
