A seeker is someone who is actively on the lookout for AEDs ( automated external defibrillators ) in public places and in places of work to update us; or someone who in an actual event, seeks out the nearest AED and bring it back to the location of the victim. Do not need to be trained in CPR or in the use of the AED.
A pumper is someone who does chest compressions on the victim.
A shocker is someone who activates the AED and deliver shocks to the victim when advised to by the AED.
