AED Locations on Campus

Contributed by Kathy Farley on 07/21/04 

AEDs -- automated external defibrillator's -- have increased in buildings across campus.

To provide the campus community with access to an AED in the event of a cardiac arrest emergency, units are installed in dedicated cabinets throughout campus at the locations listed below. The wall-mounted cabinets are white with a clear Plexiglas door and are very similar to a fire extinguisher cabinet. The AEDs do not administer a shock to a person who is not in cardiac arrest. Therefore, the risk of causing harm to someone by hooking the unit up to a person is nearly non-existent. Because of their safety features, they are useless to someone wishing to take an AED and use it to play a prank on another.

The AED Committee asks you to take a moment to familiarize yourself with the locations of AEDs.
