Emergency equipment


Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs)

The Faculty of Engineering provides automated defibrillator machines at the following locations:

Building Level Location
401 4 Main entrance reception area, on the wall outside the First Aid room.
401 12 Common Room, on the wall near the main entrance.
402 2 Engineering workshops, on the wall in the tea room.
439 6 Auckland Bioengineering Institute, on the wall in reception area.
303 1 Concourse (303.100.C2) in a wall cabinet.
740 1 CACM main reception area.
902 1 Reception at Newmarket Campus

Should you need to use an AED, open up the lid and a recorded message will tell you exactly what to do.

There is no chance of accidently harming anyone by prematurely attaching them to an AED as it will not release a charge unless it detects a pre-determined condition in the patient.

If in doubt …… attach it, and follow the instructions!
