Emergency Reporting: All emergencies (e.g., fires, bomb threats, personnel injuries, criminal activity, etc.) must be reported immediately to the University Police Dispatcher (255-3111) who will then call for appropriate response and outside assistance.
When reporting an emergency by phone, give the dispatcher:
The extension number you are calling from
Your exact location
Report the emergency as clearly and accurately as possible. Remember, in any situation, it is important to remain calm.
The Dispatcher may need additional information. Stay on the line; do not hang up unless otherwise directed. When the Dispatcher has all the necessary information, the Dispatcher will either ask you to hang up or will end the call.
If the emergency is fire related:
Describe the equipment or space(s) involved.
Mention whether there is smoke or flames, and their extent.
Describe the approximate size of the area affected.
Notification takes priority over fire fighting - do not fight the fire until you have finished your call to the Dispatcher, or if another individual is making the call.
Only attempt to extinguish a fire if you have been trained on how to do so and when your personal safety is not in jeopardy.
