Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) Installed in ABE

Author: Carol Weaver

The AED unit has been installed in a cabinet (with an alarm) between the doors of 204 and 205. Please note that the alarm is silenced by closing the cabinet door. If you are trained in the use of the AED, please respond when you hear the alarm - the more hands, the better. If you are not trained in CPR or the use of the AED, you can contact Lt. John Guerra of the Purdue Fire Department and register to attend one of his training sessions.

First IBC Blood Drive of 2016

It’s time for our next blood drive – January 14, 2016. Time is short due to a scheduling change, so don’t waste any time in signing up for your preferred time slot! The drive will be from 11 am until 3 pm in ABE 301 (conference room on the west end of the third floor) and snacks will be served, as usual. Don’t forget your photo ID!

As always, thank you for taking a stand and rolling up your sleeve. You will have someone’s undying gratitude.
