Medical Emergency

If someone is injured or otherwise suffering from a medical emergency:

  • DIAL 911.
  • DO NOT move the person unless there is a threat to life by leaving them.
  • If trained to administer first aid, such as bleeding control and CPR, do so.
  • If possible, avoid contact with body fluids.
  • If exposed to suspected infectious materials, notify an emergency responder upon their arrival.
  • Remain with the person until help arrives.
  • If possible, send someone else to meet emergency responders at the street.

If someone is unresponsive:

  • Start CPR if trained to do so.
  • Have someone DIAL 911 immediately. If no one is available, DIAL 911 yourself then resume CPR immediately.
  • Send someone to retrieve the nearest automated external defibrillator (AED). Continue CPR until the AED arrives.
  • Open the AED cover and follow the directions. The AED will walk you through either continuing CPR or delivering a shock if needed.
  • Continue to utilize the AED and stay with the person until help arrives.
  • See the online campus map for locations (Click on "Placemarks" and then "Defibrillators (AEDs)").
