By Sept. 1, every New Jersey high school will be mandated to have AEDs at athletic events across all levels of play — freshman, junior varsity and varsity — and will have to implement more stringent cardiac-related precautions and screenings for student athletes. A coach, designated staff member or certified emergency services provider must also be on site for the athletic events and trained in the use of AEDs.
