Quickly shocking the heart with an automated external defibrillator (AED) can return a person’s heartbeat back to normal. This research explores attitudes and awareness about emergency medical services and AEDs among the public. The case study is Prachinburi Province, Thailand. The questionnaire explored information from emergency medical staffs and the public involved in the use of emergency medical services. According to the results, most of the most common problems with officers' duties include not being able to access residential areas because vehicles are inaccessible to individuals (28.75%), respondents know emergency medical services, but most respondents are unaware of AEDs (58.75%) and do not know the location of AEDs.
