Medical Emergencies and First Aid


Fast response time is crucial in the event of a medical emergency. Mohawk College’s Security Services and Health Services personnel are trained in first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and in the use of automated external defibrillators (AED).  


Also, many departments at the college are equipped with basic first aid kits and have staff trained in Standard First Aid which includes CPR and AED training. Check with your department to identify any certified first aiders and the location of first aid kits.

Emergency Numbers (24 Hours)

Security Services is provided 24/7 and can be reached by any of the following in the event of an emergency:

  • On College phone lines (Fennell, Stoney Creek) - 55
  • IAHS (McMaster Security) - 88
