Emergency Medical Assistance
In an Emergency Medical situation, Campus Security will summon Emergency Medical Services (EMS) if needed or requested to do so. Campus Security does not transport injured or stricken individuals to hospitals or emergency care centers. If an emergency arises on campus, call Campus Services using a regular college telephone by dialing 4444 or “0” for operator. If you do not have access to a regular telephone and there is an immediate need for police, fire or ambulance response, activate any emergency phone. By pushing the large red button you will be put in touch with Lorain County’s 9-1-1 system. Again, only activate an emergency phone if police, fire or ambulance response is required.
