AED Program

AED Information/Maintenance Request Form

Public Access AED’s (Automated External Defibrillators)

In addition to responding to requests for emergency medical services, UVAC also provides education and preparedness programs throughout the campus community to promote a healthy and safe environment. One of UVAC’s major accomplishments over the past few years has been a campus-wide Automated External Defibrillator (AED) program.

UVAC facilitates the purchase and installation of the AEDs with departments on campus that want to obtain one. Using the state of Maine AED grants, we  have successfully deployed twenty-nine (29) AEDs across campus. All of which are serviced and maintained on a monthly basis by UVAC to ensure proper function in the event of a cardiac emergency.

What does an AED do?

An AED works by attaching to an unconscious person with specialized pads that stick to a persons chest. It then analyzes the heart’s electrical activity and determines if a shock is needed to restore normal electrical activity. AED’s are designed to be easy to use, and do not require any training. The device will talk you through every step. High quality CPR and the use of AED on a person in cardiac arrest greatly increases a persons chances of survival.

 AED’s on campus are typically stored in a wall-mounted cabinet.

Please do not open unless an emergency exists.

If you accidentally open one and the alarm goes off, please call the University of Maine Police at 207.581.4040 and let the dispatcher know it was accidental.

For all Emergencies – Dial 911
