I’m reaching out to emphasize the importance of a quick response during cardiac emergencies, which significantly increases survival rates. In partnership with Lee County Emergency Public Safety, we’re encouraging the registration of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) located within our community.

Why Register Your AED?

  • Immediate Response: Registered AEDs can be quickly located by our 9-1-1 operators, guiding callers to the nearest device during emergencies.


Lifesaving Instructions: Lee County Emergency Communications provides essential guidance on using the AED effectively, maximizing the chance of saving a life.

Please help us spread the word by sharing this message with anyone who might own an AED on the island. Together, we can make Sanibel a safer place for everyone.

Thank you for your commitment to our community’s well-being.

​Thank You,
