AED Locator Maps

There does not appear to be an official national UK registry or map providing a comprehensive resource for locating automatic external defibrillators that are available for public use.

Currently locators are provided by a number of sources including both public and private sources.

When an automatic external defibrillator (AED) is placed such that it can be used by the public it should be registered with the ambulance service for that locale.  Usually the AED’s case will then be given an id that should be associated with it.  If the device is required any person wanting to use it should call 999 and then quote the code.  If the case is protected by a coded lock the unlock sequence will be given whilst professional help dispatched.

Locator Maps and Lists

On locator maps, AED’s that are available to the public 24×7 are usually marked in green, whereas AED’s not 24×7 are in red


GoodSAM – Good Smartphone Activated Medics, app that connects those in need with life savers.  Not so much a map of AED’s but a database of people who can help and they say they have a comprehensive list of AED’s.
