As DeSales University continues to expand and enhance our emergency services available to all faculty, staff, students, and visitors, we have recently purchased AED units and are in the process of installing them throughout all campus buildings. We are looking for those faculty and staff who currently have CPR/AED certification or those who wish to become CPR/AED certified to assist us in our efforts by serving the campus community.

If you interested in participating or becoming CPR/AED certified, please contact Dennis Rasley in the Office of Emergency Services at ext. 1513 or EmergencyServices@desales.edu.
