Stay Calm!

When reporting an emergency, it is important to provide information to the Public Safety Dispatcher in a calm and clear manner. Depending upon the nature of the emergency, the caller may be asked to stay on the line in order for the dispatcher to obtain more information.

  • All 7777 calls are given priority, as the may involve immediate threats to life and/or property.
  • The Public Safety Dispatcher is the person best able to coordinate the necessary responding agencies in an emergency situation.
  • Public Safety Officers are all state certified as Medical Response Technicians (MRT) or Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT).
  • Please do not place calls directly to off-campus resources (911, police, fire, ambulance). Public Safety personnel can respond quickly to an emergency and are equipped to coordinate a response from other agencies (police, fire, ambulance) as needed.
  • If evacuation is necessary, go to the nearest exit and leave the building quickly. Do not call Public Safety to ask questions. Do not use an elevator during evacuation and maintain a safe distance from the subject building once you have evacuated.
  • Follow all directions provided by Public Safety staff.

For all non-emergency and routine calls and inquiries call extension 7985 from any campus phone and 860.768.7985 from an off campus phone, pay phone, or cell phone.
