On Campus Emergencies
In the event an emergency should arise on campus, the following procedures
should be followed:
- If it is of a serious nature that requires police, rescue squad and/or ambulance, dial 911 immediately,
- Always call Security at x8246 OR "0" from any campus phone. Apprise them of your precise location and the name of the individual(s) involved. Security will assist medical authorities in finding their way around campus. It is imperative that Security is alerted to any emergency.
- If the emergency is in an area where any hazardous materials may be located (such as a laboratory, print shop, art studio, etc.), please inform Security so they can let emergency responders know of any potential danger.
- If the emergency involves a student, Security will alert the Student Affairs office, as well as Susan Girard, Director of Health & Insurance Services, so she can assist the emergency team by providing pertinent information (i.e., allergies to medications) in the event the student cannot speak for him/herself. Only essential information will be released. Confidentiality of health records is safeguarded at all times.
- In our efforts to maintain confidentiality, please remove yourself from the immediate emergency area once assistance has arrived. This will not only give better access to rescue personnel, it will help ensure that confidential information is not overheard beyond those individuals who need to know. Thank you for your compassion and cooperation. You may be asked to complete an accident/incident report for Security. Your cooperation in giving an accurate and detailed account of the incident will be appreciated.
- Security can also be reached directly by dialing "0" from any campus phone.
