Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
An AED is a lightweight, battery-operated, portable device that checks the heart’s rhythm and sends a shock to the heart to restore a normal rhythm. The device is used to help people having sudden cardiac arrest. Defibrillators are located in every campus building except for the North Classroom. If use is initiated, 9-1-1 should also be called.
Should the closure of any COTC campus be necessary due to weather or other emergencies, text announcements will be sent via the Campus Emergency Alert System. An announcement will also be placed on the COTC homepage, cotc.edu, on local TV and radio stations, and on the college emergency closing phone line at 740.755.7193.
