Nonemergency situations are those that present neither a threat to life nor a need for immediate medical attention.
Examples of nonemergency situations include theft, vandalism, verbal assault or threat, car towing, and so forth. Serious, yes, but not an emergency. Use Public Safety service for these matters.
In the event medical attention is needed for a nonemergency situation, contact the Public Safety Office for that campus. After arrival on scene, Public Safety staff will assess whether additional paramedic assistance is needed.
Injuries can occur to anyone at anytime. The following sections break down what to do for nonemergency situations for specific community members.
For incidents involving students, where the Public Safety Office is able to treat, the Public Safety personnel will arrange transportation from the incident to an appropriate medical facility.
When it is determined a student needs either emergency medical attention or paramedic assessment, dial 9-1-1 to report the emergency, then report the emergency to the Public Safety Office on that campus (if not reported by Public Safety staff).
Staff, Faculty & Volunteers
For at-work nonemergency injuries involving staff, faculty, or volunteers working for the college, either Public Safety or Human Relations, or both, should be contacted to arrange a referral to the appropriate Workman’s Compensation treatment location.
