EMERGENCY / NON-EMERGENCY RESOURCES

FOR ALL EMERGENCIES, CALL 911

In the event of a fire, activate the building’s fire alarm system BEFORE calling 911.
Evacuate the building immediately! (see Fire Evacuation section)

When calling 911:

  1. Stay on the line with the dispatcher.
  2. Provide the address of the building involved and your exact location. This is especially critical if you are calling from a cell phone.
  3. Provide a thorough description of the incident to ensure that proper resources are dispatched.
  4. Do not hang up until the dispatcher tells you to do so.

Emergency Telephone System (ETS): Over 250 ETS boxes are located at almost every street intersection and other strategic locations on the Purdue campus. The ETS boxes are yellow or black, have a blue light on top and are marked "EMERGENCY" or "911."

For emergencies, use the Emergency Telephone System in the following manner:

  1. Open the door and/or
  2. Push the button
