Campus AED (Automated External Defibrillator) Locations

EH & S Home ]

CWU recently purchased eight Philips HeartStart FR2+ Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs).  They have been installed in several buildings around the campus.  AEDs are a proven aid in the survival of those suffering from a sudden cardiac event and are designed to be used by bystanders and others with some basic training. 

While the units are quite simple to use, and could be used by an untrained person, it is recommended that anyone having access to an AED get the basic CPR and AED training in order to better understand how to use the device as quickly and effectively as possible. 

Time is a critical factor with a sudden cardiac event.  First aid/CPR classes offered by CWU include AED training.  CWU will be offering specific CPR/AED training to the campus community in the near future.

The AEDs are stored in white cabinets mounted in easy-to-find locations in the following buildings:

  • Barge Hall – Second floor, west hallway near room 202, close to the southwest stairwell
  • Black Hall – West entrance main lobby under the clock by the book depository
  • Bouillon Hall – West entrance main lobby
  • Brooks Library – First floor main hallway by computer lab/class 101, north of the totem pole
  • McConnell Hall – Main hallway between scene shop and departmental offices
  • Music Building – South entrance lobby near elevator machine room 143
  • Nicholson Pavilion – Front main lobby hallway near ticket booth and basketball arena
  • Science Building – East entrance main lobby

There are also four AEDs in the SURC (one on each floor in the Recreation Center, one near the Ballroom, and one near the Food Court), and the Trainers in the Athletic department have AEDs in the Training Room in Nicholson Pavilion and at CWU athletic events where a Trainer is in attendance.

The cabinets are alarmed and will produce a loud siren noise when the door is opened.  Shutting the door will turn off the alarm.  For additional information, please contact Environmental Health and Safety at 963-2252.
