First-Aider Contact Details

First-Aid Kit Locations
First-Aid Kits can be found on each floor of the Purdie Building close to the entrance of the main stairwell (see picture below). If you require access to First-Aid supplies before a First-Aider arrives, please use as required.

Location of Automatic External Defibrilator (AED)
The School of Chemistry has an AED located near the main entrance. The AED device is housed within a signposted cupboard as shown below. If you suspect someone is suffering a medical event involving their heart (i.e. a heart attack), it is important to act swiftly. You should call for an ambulance and retrieve the AED device (or send another person to retrieve the AED on your behalf).
