Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are located throughout the campus.
AEDs are emergency medical devices used when a person is experiencing cardiac arrest, delivering an electrical shock designed to return the heart to its normal rhythm. Bowdoin College maintains a number of these devices in fixed locations on campus, as well as portable units in our Security vehicles and for use by our Athletic Trainers and Health Care Providers.
Readily accessible AEDs are located in many of the College's primary public venues, such as theaters, concert halls, auditoriums, museums, athletic facilities, and dining halls, as shown on this campus map.
Faculty and staff interested in learning how to use an AED, in conjunction with cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), should contact Human Resources at 725-3911 and sign up for our in-house training course.
Please contact the Office of Safety and Security at 725-3314 with any questions.
