In the event of an emergency such as an assault, sexual assault or threat to your life, LEAVE SITUATION and CALL 911 and then Security.

How do I know if it is an emergency?

Err on the side of caution. If you are not able to call 911 yourself, ask a co-worker or supervisor.

What information is required when I dial 911?

  • Describe the Emergency
  • Location (City, Campus, Site)
  • Building Name
  • Building Address & Room Number
  • Phone Number
  • Do NOT hang up as additional information may be needed

When should I call 911?

  • An event that involves an immediate threat to a person or property (e.g. bomb threat, attack, gunshot, fire, car accident)
  • Medical emergency (e.g. fall, head trauma, severe burn, uncontrollable bleeding, persistent or sudden chest pain, breathing emergency, severely altered level of consciousness)
  • A serious crime that is in progress of that has just occurred (e.g. sexual assault, robbery, fight, break, and enter [if there is a suspect on scene] or a report of an impaired driver)

Who else should I notify?

  • Immediately notify your supervisor (or have someone notify them on your behalf)
  • Occupational first aid attendant(s) if worker(s) have injuires
  • Ensure that Security has already been notified
