The Governor's office says The New York State Police saved 15-percent of the people they had to use Automated External Defibrillators on, when those people went into cardiac arrest. 

That rate is almost twice the national average.

We’re told there is an AED in every marked State Police car, and in every state building. 

This week, we're told state troopers and civilian employees are participating in AED and cardiopulmonary resuscitation training, as part of an ongoing re-certification process.
