Emergency! What to do

For Emergency Response to a serious or life-threatening injury or illness, call 911.

In an emergency, it is important to remain calm and assess the situation. Each emergency situation requires a different response depending on the nature of the emergency and its severity. Think through your response before you act, keeping your safety and the safety of others as your first priority. Below you will find links to valuable resources to help you plan for, manage, and report emergencies.
