AEDs on campus

There are six publicly-accessible Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) on the Medford/Somerville campus. In an emergency, anyone can retrieve the AED to allow a trained individual to use it to treat a victim of sudden cardiac arrest. Opening the cabinet in which the AED is stored will automatically send a signal to summon Emergency Medical Services (EMS), but it’s still a good idea to direct someone to call for help.
