Automated External Defibrillators (AED)

All major buildings on Dalhousie University campuses in Halifax are equipped with AEDs. They are Medtronic Lifepak CR Plus models, and are stored in cabinets usually in the main lobby or atrium of the building. In addition, vehicles operated by Security Services are equipped with an AED.


For information on how to use an AED, please watch this informational video.

Note: Season 3, episode 7 is about AEDs. Information about AEDs and their uses begins at 2:30, and training on how to use them begins at 6:13.

If your department requires further information or would like to have a brief hands-on training session, please contact Stephen Ellis at the Environmental Health and Safety Office.


It is important to familiarize yourself with the AED locations, and find the ones nearest to your space.
