Dartmouth EMS’s Public Access Defibrillator Program aims to make AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) accessible in case of sudden cardiac arrest. We manage and keep records for all college-owned AEDs, and we work to ensure that they are in optimal condition and that the entire campus is covered. You can see where these devices are located on this page.
In addition to these permanent locations, Dartmouth EMS and Safety and Security always keep units in their vehicles and the Safety Boat to be sure that one is always available in case of an emergency. Some units also float among departments as needed for particular events.
If your department would like an AED ordered and installed, or if you have any questions, please contact us at Dartmouth.EMS@Dartmouth.edu.
