Chesapeake AED Services, LLC started as “Chesapeake Training Services” in September 2003. The founder Mike Marsiglia, a veteran paramedic with 25 years’ experience in Anne Arundel County Fire Department provided CPR Certification Training for companies in the Baltimore, Maryland and Washington, DC area. Over time the requests for training made it necessary to hire additional instructors. In 2005 Chesapeake Training Services became an American Heart Association Training center as well as an American Health and Safety Institute-ASHI training center. As a training partner with Medtronic Physio Control and LifeLinkMD the geographical area expanded to include Balitmore, Northern Virginia, Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Delaware. We now have two full-time and six part-time instructors.
In 2007, Carol Marsiglia became the owner. As the company grew, the realization that AED sales were a necessary component of any successful AED program and the decision was made to start retailing AED’s. In 2007 Chesapeake Training Services changed its name to reflect the new business model and became Chesapeake AED Services, LLC and was granted a distributorship for Physio Control LifePak family of AED’s. Becoming a CORE partner in 2010 gave Chesapeake AED Services, LLC the opportunity to provide its customers with all of the products necessary for a successful Public Access Defibrillation (PAD) programs. Chesapeake AED Services, LLC provides sales and Services of AED’s as well as training and program management for the entire United States.
