You may have noticed an increased number of AED and Epinephrine Injectors (EPI) mounted throughout the Saint John campus. Due to the generous support of the Risk Management Office, we have purchased two new AED and seven EPI cabinets.

Locations:
HWK Commons ground floor – one AED & one EPI
GH Ground Floor – one AED by room 1 & one EPI by Quad entrance
HH Ground Floor – one EPI by HHLT Entrance
Athletics Ground Floor – one AED & one EPI by Gym centre entrance
Security Office – one mobile AED & one EPI (adult and child)
Canada Games Stadium (seasonal) – one AED & one EPI inside main doors
SJD Residence – one EPI & one Naloxon in tunnel near pedway
MacKay Residence – one Naloxon on second floor near elevator

These are for anyone to use in an emergency. First-aid training is not a pre-requisite.

AED and EPI familiarization sessions will be available on a drop-in bases on Aug. 29 and 30, room G16 in the Hans W. Khlon Commons. Sessions start on the hour beginning at 11 a.m., 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. for both days.

All supervisors are encouraged to promote staff attend in order to reduce the anxiety of using the equipment.
