Idaho mandates comprehensive AED program protocols, including device maintenance, user training, strategic placement and reporting, activation of Emergency Medical Services (EMS), and reporting after an event. The Good Samaritan law extends protection to all involved in AED programs, excluding trainers, with immunity not contingent upon adherence to specific administrative or operational guidelines. Furthermore, facilities where sedation or anesthesia is administered must be equipped with an AED.
