Emergency Contacts

  1. In the event of any emergency, it is important to call immediately. A call to any of these numbers will activate response from the appropriate emergency response operation(s):
    1. Police Department 911
    2. Fire Department 911
    3. Campus Safety 3911 from a Viterbo phone; 608-796-3911 or 608-780-1582 from non-Viterbo phone.
  2. Provide the location of the building involved and your exact location (especially critical if calling from a cell phone).
  3. Provide a thorough description of the incident to ensure that proper resources are dispatched. Do not hang up until the dispatcher tells you to do so.
