Dear students, we have completed the face to face community engagement

*Defibrillator located in AVC main foyer*

Please be aware that the Atlantic Veterinary College now has a
defibrillator located in the AVC main foyer.  It is mounted on the wall
just outside the Office of Academic & Student Affairs between their
entrance door and the wall display case.

Hopefully we will never have to use it!
