Since August 12, 2015, Alaska has removed all administrative and operational mandates previously placed on AED programs. The state offers Good Samaritan immunity exclusively to individuals who either possess an AED or utilize one during a medical emergency, with the exception of medical directors and trainers. Furthermore, there is no statewide requirement for AEDs to be installed in specific locations.
