Emergency Contacts

In case of a building emergency that necessitates an immediate evacuation:

  • Activate the building alarm using a pull-station
  • Exit the building by the nearest exit
  • Be prepared to meet the responders at the Perth Drive entrance located at the back of the building (across from the Chemistry parking lot)

For an event that does not require immediate evacuation of the building, but requires urgent attention, please contact one of the individuals below. Note that dialing 911 from a campus phone connects to campus police; they will dispatch the necessary emergency personnel such as SERT, HAZMAT team, Fire Prevention, Campus Police, or external services.
