- Immediate police assistance is needed when reporting a crime in progress or a life-threatening or violent situation.
- Immediate fire assistance is needed when reporting a fire on campus or any other location.
- Immediate ambulance assistance is needed when immediate medical attention or transport is needed for victims of serious accidents or illness.
What is NOT an emergency?
It is not an emergency when the situation is not dangerous and immediate action is not necessary. For these incidences, use the non-emergency numbers.
What if your complaint or concern is not an emergency?
