The Designated First Aider Guide provides details of this service. DFAs are employees appointed to provide first aid services and receive training in First Aid/CPR (typically Standard First Aid Level C CPR/AED). DFAs also receive secondary on-line training on their responsibilities within the University’s First Aid Program. Designated First Aiders include:

  • Security Representatives as the U of L 24/7 First Aid Responders on campus.
  • Safety Services Registered Nurse with Advanced First Aid training.
  • Sport and Recreation Services staff have specialty pool/water/sport first aid training.
