If safe to do so, note and report the incident to ANU security on 612 52249, an emergency warden or your supervisor.

An Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) is located near the Designated Resting Area on level 1 of CBE Building 26C. (For further advice with regard to location of AEDs on campus please see the map at this link Campus AED Locations.)

The Emergency flip chart provides a quick reference guide to effective action in the event of an emergency. (Please note that the alarms in CBE are designed to go to immediate evacuation alarm - not the alert alarm as stated in the flip chart.)
