"From his work on legislation that requires automated external defibrillators (AEDs) and establishes a funding source to pay for the devices, to his appreciation and public recognition of emergency responders, Governor Quinn has played an active and visible role in the broad deployment of AEDs and in educating the citizens of Illinois about the public health crisis related to SCA," said Chris Chiames, executive director of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association.

While lieutenant governor of Illinois, Quinn worked with the Illinois General Assembly to pass the Colleen O'Sullivan law requiring defibrillators in schools, indoor park district facilities and physical fitness facilities. At his urging, the General Assembly also established the Heartsaver AED Fund, which helps make AEDs more affordable by providing matching grants to those entities. In 2008, Quinn worked to expand the Colleen O'Sullivan Law to require defibrillators at outdoor park facilities as well. Throughout his tenure as lieutenant governor and now governor, Quinn has been one of the nation's most visible public officials and advocates for improved emergency response for SCA victims. He continues his public push for defibrillators by recognizing the life-saving efforts of first responders, whether they are emergency person
