We have an AED in our common house, though have fortunately never had to use it. I think the rationale for having it there was partly that the CH is a semi-public place where we often have large gatherings of non-residents, as well as our own meetings, dinners and parties. An unspoken subtext could be the stress induced by the monthly community meeting, though improved facilitation training has greatly reduced that :) Also, response time from our local hospital is at least 10 minutes, time enough that the AED might make a difference. A modern AED is designed to be used by people with little or no experience, and the machine talks you through the procedure. I think it's a good idea to have one, mounted on the wall in a prominent place, with periodic 'refreshers' to remind people where it is, when & how to use it, and to replace batteries.
