A first aid station, as seen in Halo 3: ODST.

A first aid station, also known as a medical kiosk, is a usable stationary terminal in Halo 3: ODST that dispenses Optican health packs. A normal first aid station contains two health pack sockets. Like most of New Mombasa's infrastructure, these stations are controlled by the city's urban infrastructure AI, the Superintendent.[1]


Since ODST and Marine Corps personnel lack any form of energy shielding, first aid stations are a vital part of gameplay. The health packs have the same function as their precursor in Halo: Combat Evolved.


  • The achievement "Heal Up" is acquired by using one of these for the first time in Halo 3: ODST.
  • Some medical kiosks are empty, and hold Audio Logs instead. In this case, the health packs that should be in the kiosk are on the ground next to it.
  • It is likely that the kiosks normally use a controlled dispensing system, but switched to unlimited service to assist civilians and military personnel during the Battle of Earth.
