Defibrillator Program (PAD)

Public Access DefibrillationThe County of Simcoe Paramedic Services Public Access Defibrillator (PAD) Program was developed in 2005 and since that time has coordinated the placement of over 700 Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s).  Public Access Defibrillators (PADs) can now be found in most Public, Catholic and participating French schools throughout Simcoe County.  They can also be prominently found in most arenas, community centres, sports facilities, township, municipal and city buildings.  Many other public places and private businesses also have PADs available in their facilities.       

 To date the PAD program has had eighteen saves within Simcoe County.  These saves are attributed to the quick administration of CPR and AED use by community members.                        

Organizations interested in placing an AED in their facility should contact:
