General Emergency Procedures

  • Always assess if anyone is injured and the severity of injuries. Immediately contact Safety and Support Services (SASS) or 911.
  • Provide traffic control assistance to enable emergency vehicles to respond.
  • Never speculate about the circumstances of an emergency.
  • Follow directions given by law enforcement or emergency response personnel.
  • Remain calm, keep each other informed as much as possible, reassure others.
  • Do not speak to the media; direct them to SASS the media relations contact.

On Campus

  • Dial from an external phone: 574-936-9936
  • Dial from an internal extension: 0
  • Using Campus Shield, swipe the red emergency phone icon
  • Dial 911, then follow up with a call to SASS (Safety and Support Services) so they can assist in directing emergency personnel to your specific campus location.

Off Campus

  • Dial 574-936-9936 from a cell phone or other off-campus phone.

Emergencies can occur at any time, without warning. A well-coordinated response helps prevent personal injury, property damage, and lessen the resulting confusion. Careful planning, with an emphasis on safety, can help everyone on campus handle crises and emergencies with appropriate responses, and save lives. There is no guarantee that a perfect response to emergencies is practical or possible. Therefore, a plan should be considered a guide for building occupants to familiarize themselves with basic emergency planning, response, and evacuation.

In instances where emergency procedures given by the SASS (Safety And Support Services) differ from those on this web site, such procedures will supersede other instructions.
