Subject: Reminder: Emergency Calling for Help
This is a reminder, that if you need help in an emergency situation you may either push the panic button, if your department has one, or you may dial 9-911 from a campus phone. Either way, campus police and library security will promptly arrive in your area.
There are no exact rules dictating when you should call for help, although here are some examples:
It is always better to error on the side of caution and to call for help if you feel afraid or uncomfortable with a situation.
Please take this time to re-familiarize yourself with the location of the panic button in your area.
You may also want to program the campus police emergency number and non-emergency numbers into your cell phone.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
Each service counter has a panic button hidden from the public?
If you are having trouble with a patron, you can slyly or quickly get help from campus police.
Ask your supervisor where it is in your area!
