Automatic External Defibrillator (AED)


An Automated External Defibrillator or AED is
a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the
potentially life threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular
fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia in a patient, and is able
to treat them through defibrillation, the application of
electrical therapy which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the
heart to reestablish an effective rhythm.
If your department has purchased an AED please specify
location (s) here:
Emergency Procedures

Purdue’s Emergency Procedures Guide should be
periodically reviewed to supplement the BEP
information and develop an individual plan of
action for emergencies. It can be found on the
Emergency Preparedness website:
http://www.purdue.edu/emergency_preparedness/
Evacuation Procedures

Immediately obey evacuation alarms and orders. Tell others to evacuate.

No one may remain inside a building when an evacuation is in progress.

Classes in session must evacuate.




If involved with hazardous research or doing a dangerous procedure, immediately
shut down operations that could create additional hazards if left unattended.
Evacuate as soon as possible.
When you evacuate, take keys, coat, purse and any other critical personal items
with you to the EAA. REMEMBER, IN CASE OF A FIRE, IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOT
DELAY EVACUATION.

Do not reenter the building until authorized fire or police department personnel
give the “All Clear” instruction.

guidance:

After getting to a safe location and without jeopardizing your safety, try and
obtain additional clarifying information by all possible means possible (e.g.
Purdue Homepage, TV, radio, email, etc.)
EMERGENCY
EMERGENCY ASSEMBLY AREA (EAA)—
SHELTER IN PLACE
Weather-Related—Tornado Warning
Basement corridors, basement offices, basement
restrooms
Or the lowest level of the building (stay away from
windows and doors)
Hazardous Materials (HAZMAT) Release
Remain or find an unaffected office or work area and
close windows and doors.
Seek a safe location, preferable a room without
windows that can be locked or secured by barriers.
Civil Disturbance—active shooter
Shelter In Place Location (s)

Specify where to shelter in your building
All-Clear Procedures


Do not re-enter the building until the all-clear
announcement is given by a Purdue Police or Fire
Officer.
The All Hazards Outdoor Warning Sirens will
not be used to send an all clear signal. Seek
additional information by all means possible to
include TV and radio channels.
Evacuation Guidelines for People
Requesting Additional Assistance





Check on people with additional needs during an evacuation. A “buddy system,” where
people with additional needs arrange for volunteers (co-workers) to alert and assist them in
an emergency is recommended.
Only attempt an emergency evacuation if you have had emergency assistance training or the
person is in immediate danger and cannot wait for emergency services personnel.
Always ask someone requiring additional assistance how you can help before attempting any
emergency evacuation assistance. Ask how he or she can best be assisted or moved, and
whether there are any special considerations or items that need to come with the person.
Faculty and staff who have mobility impairments should let the building deputy or designated
building representative know the location of their usual work area and additional needs.
An individual that requires additional assistance may fill out the “Voluntary Registry for
Persons Requesting Additional Assistance” form located in Appendix C. Purdue Fire
Department personnel will assist the individual in developing a personalized response plan for
possible emergency incidents. Once all information has been entered on the form it should be
hand carried to the Purdue Fire Department or sent by campus mail/U.S. Postal Service.
