Oregon Senate Bill 556

Oregon just passed Senate Bill 556 which requires any place of public assembly must have at least one (1) AED on-site. The bill defines “place of public assembly” as:
· Having 50,000 square feet or more of floor space and:
· The public congregates for purposes such as deliberation, shopping, entertainment, amusement or awaiting transportation; or
· Business activities are conducted; and at least 25 individuals congregate on a normal business day.

It does exempt some facilities such as schools and churches, but not much more.

This rule takes effect January 1, 2010. So be ready. If you need information or training on AED’s give us a call.
