The City of Fredericksburg has begun a phased process of installing AED devices in city parks and on city trails. Using donations from the Knights of Pythias and from Mary Washington Healthcare, AEDs are now available in Memorial Park, Old Mill Park, W.L. Harris Park, and Alum Spring Park at the Virginia Central Railway Trail.

The AED devices are located in climate-controlled security boxes that require users to call 911 to obtain the access code. By dialing 911, first responders are alerted that emergency services are required, and the caller will be on the phone with a dispatcher who can assist them in the use of the AED.

Fredericksburg Parks, Recreation and Events says donations will continue to be solicited so more AED devices can be installed in parks and on trails.
