You can find descriptions of them and how to use them at AED quick facts.

Below are photos of most of the locations of the AEDs .

(When you look at these first photos of the AEDs accessible 24 hours a day,
you are looking for a white box with a red AED container in it.)

The model originally put at the pool deck is a little bit different than most. To turn it on you pull where it says “PULL” and when that lid lifts off you will find the pads already attached to the machine.
(Many other models have you plug in the connector for the pads.)

Again, the De Anza College campus has three models of AEDs. You can find descriptions of them and how to use them at AED quick facts.



There are other AEDs located inside buildings
that are not accessible to everyone 24 hours a day

There is an AED inside the Campus Police Office (FHDA District Police, De Anza Substation) and inside the Health Services office, both on the lower floor of the Campus Center, east side, as well as one in each campus police car.

There is an AED inside the Flint Center for Performing Arts.

There is an AED with the athletic trainers on the south side of PE6, facing the stadium.


This next location may be changed due to remodeling:
As you walk into the front entrance of the Lifetime Fitness and Wellness Center , on the level above the pools, the AED is on a wall directly in front of you.

There is an AED inside the PE Division office. In the photo below, the office door is the center one on the upper level. To find the AED, go in the office door, turn right, then left. The AED is in a bracket (not in a case) on the wall opposite the refrigerator.

AED Trips a Canine Alarm

Last fall, the automated external defibrillator (AED) used by the Atlanta Braves created quite a stir when the team traveled to play the New York Mets.

John D. Cantwell, MD, an Atlanta cardiologist and a team physician for the Braves, recounts how the team and all its equipment had to pass a security clearance because of controversy surrounding Braves pitcher John Rocker. (Rocker’s inflammatory comments had been widely quoted.) “Everything cleared, then our equipment started beeping, and the bomb-sniffing dogs went ballistic,” Cantwell says. “It was the AED signaling that its battery was low.”

The moral: When traveling, make sure AEDs are fully powered, especially around bomb-sniffing dogs.
