Additionally, a number of new Automated External Defibrillator (AED) units have been installed throughout the campus, 13 AED units are now publicly available for use in an emergency. The units are easy to access and use. The location of each of the units is displayed on our campus map found on the Delta College home page under Maps and Directions. Shelter area and evacuation maps can be found in each classroom and in designated conference rooms, corridors and entrances.

X-1 Building Renovation (2014)
