First Aid Kits and AEDs
First Aid Kits are located in all building common areas. More extensive first aid kits, along with automated external defibrillators (AEDs), are located at the FL2, CG1, and ML front desks. RAF and NWSC have first aid kits and an AED located in their first aid rooms.
UCAR’s MERT team deactivated
For a number of years UCAR had a Medical Emergency Response Team (MERT), a group of employee volunteers, drawn from all UCAR sites. This group received training in adult first aid and CPR. In recent years voluntary membership in this team has declined, and as a result Safety and Site Services has deactivated this program. All emergencies are now handled through the 911 system.
