The Security Officer helping you or someone you know has excellent first aid training, many are also trained paramedics. We deal with a variety of calls on a weekly basis. From cuts and scrapes to cardiac arrests, we are prepared for the unique environment the campus offers us as first responders.

Equipped

We are well equipped for any emergency. Our emergency vehicles carry fully stocked first aid bags, oxygen equipment and a defibrillator.

The automated external defibrillator is a new piece of equipment that has been added to our service. These devices, called defibrillators, have proven to be valuable tools in the treatment of cardiac arrest patients. Studies have shown that successful resuscitation of a cardiac arrest patient is dependent on rapid response and early initiation of defibrillation and resuscitation techniques. They save lives!
