In Case of Emergency
Call 911 for any Life-Threatening Emergency
- Serious Injuries
- Any other incident which poses an immediate threat to life or the environment
If you have a chemical, biological, or radiological incident that does not pose a life-threatening emergency:
- Call (814) 865-6391 Monday - Friday, 8 AM - 5 PM, on holidays or all other times call (814) 863-1111 (University Police). After hours, University Police will notify the appropriate EHS staff member to provide assistance.
- If this involves the spill of a small quantity of a chemical, biological, or radioactive material you are familiar with, and you have been trained in proper clean-up procedures, follow those instructions.
