Safety Resources



The Auraria Campus offers many FREE safety resources to current students, faculty, and staff. Take a peek below and sign up for your next training!


Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are in all major campus buildings as a safety measure for cardiac crisis events. These portable devices are located in easy-access points, primarily on the first floor of buildings. In buildings you frequent, please be aware of where you can find the closest AED. The AED will coach untrained responders on operating the device with voice commands. It checks for heart rhythm and will send an electric shock to restore the heart back to a normal rhythm if it is deemed necessary.


The Campus AED Program Guide outlines the availability, maintenance, and proper use of AEDs on the Auraria Campus. In addition, it outlines roles and responsibilities to ensure program compliance and success.

Fully charged and properly maintained portable fire extinguishers can help minimize injuries and damage to the campus. The Denver Fire Code requires that portable fire extinguishers be present in homes and businesses, and that they be mounted, located, and identified so they are readily accessible. Since portable fire extinguishers are only as effective as the user, the Fire Prevention and Investigation Division offers training to help ensure that employees have the confidence and skills necessary to take action should a fire occur on campus. 

The Denver Fire Department Training includes:

  • Overview of the fire protection equipment installed in on campus
  • Review of proper procedures and fire evacuation routes
  • Alertness to fire hazards
  • Review of the types of fire extinguishers and their proper use
  • Identification of the classes of fires and how each is fought
  • Indoor or outdoor hands-on experience
