Reporting an Emergency
Communication is a critical component of every emergency. It is imperative that anyone who discovers or recognizes an emergency communicates the required information to the proper department and/or local authorities. Call 911 when in doubt about whom to call.
An individual should provide the following information when reporting an emergency:
- State “This is an emergency.”
- State your name.
- Provide the location of the emergency (building, room, etc.).
- State the nature of the emergency (fire, chemical spill, etc.).
- Indicate whether injuries have occurred.
- Indicate hazards present that may affect emergency personnel who respond.
- Provide phone number at or near the scene where the person reporting can be contacted.
