Here at Winslow cohousing, we are going to have an AED (portable defibrillator), at least as a loaner for the community to use, because one of our members owns one. We agreed to pay for the consumable part of it (batteries and pads), for him making it accessible to the community. There is some training required as well. (watching a video?) So, we don't really have to deal with the full cost. These devices are popping up all over, (airports, many other public places), the hardest part is being in the right place at the right time and recognizing what is actually needed. (i.e. having someone else around when the event happened) Since we live close to a fire station, I expect people are more likely to call 911, but if they don't show up quickly it could save a life.

The chances of someone needing it while in the commonhouse while someone was there who knew where it was and how to use it were so slim that it seemed not a reasonable purchase.

People were confused about why such a meager proposal would be posted... needless to say, nothing came of it.
