An automated external defibrillator (AED) must be installed in all public places, such as temples, schools, community centers, transportation hubs, tourist attractions, high schools, universities, assembly sites, leisure areas that attract at least 3,000 people a day, large shopping malls, hotels and hot spring areas.
Police AED programs may be the solution; police officers can sometimes respond to cardiac arrest victims more quickly than ambulance services.
