Trent partners with Action First Aid to make campus a cardiac safe environment

Trent University has partnered with Action First Aid to ensure that its campuses in Peterborough and Durham are cardiac safe environments for students, staff, and visitors. The partners have placed 37 publicly accessible automated external defibrillators (AEDs) around the campuses. With the placement of the AEDs, Trent states that it will be in compliance with the Government of Ontario’s Defibrillator Registration and Public Access Act when it comes into force. “AEDs can be used by anyone,” explained Trent Manager of Environment Health and Safety Elyse Sawdon, “[T]hey are a strong and obvious choice to enhance our health and safety measures for everyone who works, studies, plays, and visits on campus.”
