Use this guide to learn how to handle emergency situations on campus
In case of medical emergencies it is essential to remain calm and to protect yourself. Before you enter a scene ensure it is safe from risk of fire, electricity, traffic, smoke, water, poisonous gases, etc. Your personal safety takes precedence!
Be sure to call 911, notify EMRG or Campus Police, or call the emergency number at 416-287-7333 as soon as possible.
When calling 911 or the emergency number be sure to notify the dispatchers about:
- Which Emergency service you require (i.e. Police, EMS, or Fire)
- The nature of the emergency
- The address or location and main intersection
- The telephone number you are calling from
- Your name
If you are with the victim during the emergency try to remain with the patient so EMRG and related emergency services are able to obtain as much information as possible.
Do not move the victim unless necessary to save his or her life or to prevent further injury.
