Acts of Violence
If danger is imminent, call 911 first, and then call Public Safety.

If you see any violent or threatening behavior which you think is an immediate danger to people or property –

  1. Stay calm.
  2. Secure your own safety and the safety of others around you. Remain where you are until it is clearly safe for you to leave the area.
  3. Call Public Safety at ext. 2400 and 911. (From a main campus pay phone dial 564-2400 or 911; the calls will be free.)
    Describe the following:
    • the location where the incident took place/is taking place,
    • the individual(s) involved in the violence (physical features, clothing, etc.), and
    • any weapons involved.
  4. Cooperate with Public Safety and with local law enforcement personnel when they have responded to the call and taken control of the situation.
  5. If you are a witness, be prepared to make a statement describing what you saw, what happened when, etc.
