Reporting Emergencies

WHEN TO CALL 911

You should call 911 in ALL emergencies.

WHAT IS AN EMERGENCY?

An emergency is any immediate threat to life and /or property that requires immediate response from police, fire or Emergency Medical Services. Some examples of emer- gencies are crimes in progress, any kind of fire or a serious injury or illness. If you are not sure if an incident falls into an emergency classification, feel free to call 911 when an immediate response is needed. In all situations, call Campus Safety at x9999 after you have called 911 or if an immediate response is not needed.

WHEN REPORTING AN EMERGENCY

  • Stay on the line with the dispatcher.
  • Provide the address, location and a description of the emergency.
  • Provide the phone number at your location.
  • Provide a thorough description of the incident so appropriate resources are dispatched.
  • Remain on the line until relieved by emergency personnel or directed to hangup.
