Safety Note

AED located in Smith Hall

Automated External Defibrillators (AED): AEDs are available in most University buildings, but many people are unaware of where they are or how to use them. In Smith Hall, the AED is in the main lobby near the stairwell door. In Kolthoff Hall, they are located on the 4th floor by the west elevator and on the 2nd floor southeast entrance from the Northrup Mall. More locations on campus can be found at https://dem.umn.edu/aeds. Wondering how to use it? An online demo is available at http://aedchallenge.com/.
