Reporting Emergencies

Emergency situations often arise unexpectedly. When an emergency situation occurs, it is important to know:

  1. Who to contact.
  2. Where to contact them from.
  3. What to report.

The Office of Campus Safety & Security relies upon all members of the campus community to assist in making the campus a safe place by reporting emergencies and suspected criminal activity immediately to the Campus Safety and Security Department by dialing the campus emergency number, extension 3411 (or 734-973-3411, if calling from an off-campus location). Campus telephones are labeled on the handset with this number. Free campus “House Phones” are located in the lobbies and hallways of campus buildings. Campus Safety & Security Staff are available 24 hours a day to respond to emergency calls.

When notifying the Office of Campus Safety & Security of a potential emergency, or suspected criminal activity, be prepared to provide the following information:

  • Type of incident or activity, location of incident, description of persons involved (if criminal in nature).
  • Suspected injury or condition (if medical emergency).
  • Your name, location, and number calling from.

This information will aid Campus Safety & Security staff in their response and subsequent handling of the incident. You should remain available to assist the Campus Safety & Security staff with any required additional information once they arrive. Campus Safety & Security staff will notify additional medical and/or law enforcement support as needed.
