Audit of BX and city schools shows defibrillators still not in all public schools

By law, schools in the Bronx and statewide are required to have defibrillators. But a recent audit by city Comptroller William Thompson found that not all Bronx and city schools are in compliance.

About 10 schools were randomly selected for the audit and all did not have the device. The law to have the lifesaving devices in all schools went into effect last year.

The Department of Education admits that not all schools have defibrillators but says by summer that should change.
