Why aren’t you concerned about your customers and guests? ….If you don’t have an AED, do you want to be in tomorrow’s newspaper as the store that cared for someone so somebody was saved or that you didn’t care for someone to put in an AED? And then someone lost their life that could have been saved. I also tell the shop owners, if someone is going to have a cardiac arrest here, it’s most likely going to be you and you’re likely the one who’s going to be saved. So I ask, ‘would you be concerned about liability if it was your life being saved?’ And the answer is always ‘no.
