In Wyoming, AED programs are mandated to adhere to maintenance, training, AED placement reporting, and post-event reporting protocols. The Good Samaritan law safeguards all individuals involved in AED-related activities, while other aspects of AED programs remain unprotected. Immunity under this law hinges on meeting specific administrative and operational criteria. Additionally, dentist offices in Wyoming are obligated to maintain an AED on their premises.
