Medical Emergencies

Call Campus Police immediately for any medical emergency on campus.

All officers are trained First Responders and receive annual medical and CPR training.  Officers can provide critical care while the ambulance is responding to campus. In addition, the Department is fortunate to work with student Emergency Medical Technician teams on each of our campuses who can augment our care for individuals suffering from medical emergencies, both urgent and more routine.

What to do if someone is injured or becomes ill:

  • Stay Calm.
  • Call Campus Police and explain the type of emergency, the location of the victim and the condition of the victim. Let the dispatcher know of any safety hazards - chemical spill, fire, fumes, etc.
  • Be sure to tell the dispatcher if the person is unconscious, is not breathing, is bleeding profusely, or has chest pain. These all cause the dispatcher to summon an ambulance immediately.
  • Do not hang up unless told to do so by the dispatcher.
  • Do not move the victim unless there is danger of further injury if s/he is not moved.
  • Do not give victim anything to eat or drink.

If you have a medical condition that might require special knowledge by our staff, please contact Campus Police to discuss your situation. See also our Assistance Program for Students with Disabilities for more details.
