(210 ILCS 74/15)
    Sec. 15. Automated external defibrillator required.
    (a) By the dates specified in Section 50, every physical fitness facility must have at least one AED on the facility premises. The Department shall adopt rules to ensure coordination with local emergency medical services systems regarding the placement and use of AEDs in physical fitness facilities. The Department may adopt rules requiring a facility to have more than one AED on the premises, based on factors that include the following:
        (1) The size of the area or the number of buildings
or floors occupied by the facility.
        (2) The number of persons using the facility,
excluding spectators.
    (b) A physical fitness facility must ensure that there is a trained AED user on staff during staffed business hours. For purposes of this Act, "trained AED user" has the meaning ascribed to that term in Section 10 of the Automated External Defibrillator Act.
    (b-5) The Department shall adopt rules that encourage any non-employee coach, non-employee instructor, or other similarly situated non-employee anticipated rescuer who uses a physical fitness facility in conjunction with the supervision of physical fitness activities to complete a course of instruction that would qualify such a person as a trained AED user, as defined in Section 10 of the Automated External Defibrillator Act.
    (b-10) In the case of an outdoor physical fitness facility, the AED must be housed in a building, if any, that is within 300 feet of the outdoor facility where an event or activity is being conducted. If there is such a building within the required distance, the building must provide unimpeded and open access to the housed AED, and the building's entrances shall further provide marked directions to the housed AED.
    (b-15) Facilities described in paragraph (1.5) of Section 5.25 must have an AED on site as well as a trained AED user available only during activities or events sponsored and conducted or supervised by a person or persons employed by the unit of local government, school, college, or university.
    (c) Every physical fitness facility must ensure that every AED on the facility's premises is properly tested and maintained in accordance with rules adopted by the Department.
