Medical Emergencies

  • Remain with the victim, if possible. Send someone else to call 911 and to wait for emergency response personnel at the main entrance.
  • Only render first aid based on your level of training.
  • When emergency response personnel arrive, provide the following information:
    • Location of victim
    • Description of injury or illness
    • Victim’s present condition
    • Medical history, if known
    • Your name and telephone number

Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Use

An AED is a computerized medical device that uses voice prompts, lights, and text messages to tell you the steps to take.

It can:

  • Check a person’s heart rhythm.
  • Recognize a rhythm that requires a shock.
  • Advise the rescuer when a shock is needed.

If you use an AED


  • Follow the instructions on the AED.
  • Follow the steps under Medical Emergencies.

NOTE: If an AED is removed from its mounted location, an alarm will be activated that will automatically notify University Police.

Visit the Environmental Health and Safety website to identify the AED nearest to your location.
