Safety and Security at HLS

Automated External Defibrillators (AED)

The leading cause of death in the United States is heart disease, which often leads to sudden cardiac arrest. The use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) can greatly increase a person’s chance of surviving. AEDs are simple to use and can be found throughout the university. Find locations of AEDs on the HLS campus and across Harvard University.

Local Emergency Management Team (LEMT)

The Law School maintains a standing Local Emergency Management Team (LEMT) that works closely with University officials on emergency protocols and, in the event of an incident, will coordinate emergency response activities for the School.
