Request medical direction for an AED

Washington state law requires that a licensed physician provide medical direction to a person or entity for the use of the device. The Medical Director will provide medically approved protocol to assist you in developing an AED program appropriate for your home or business. Medical Direction will be provided by the Medical Director of the Seattle Fire Department or King County Emergency Medical Services, or you may obtain medical direction from a physician of your choice.

If you require Medical Direction for multiple devices, contact the CPR/PAD Program Manager at 206-477-8664 or Laura Miccile at

Your request for Medical Direction will be forwarded to the appropriate Medical Director and will be mailed to you within two weeks.

PLEASE NOTE: By hitting the submission button, the request will go to our CPR/AED program manager. You may see a blank page after submitting your request but we will still receive your information.
