Medical Emergency/Basic Response to any Emergency

  1. If necessary, call 911.
    1. Provide information to dispatcher on type of emergency, location of victim, condition of victim, and any dangerous conditions.
    2. Stay on the line until the dispatcher has -completed questioning on victim’s location, consciousness, breathing and chief complaint to determine appropriate response.
  2. Call Campus Safety at 3911 if using a Viterbo phone; 608-796-3911 or 608-780-1582 if using a non-Viterbo phone.
  3. Those trained to perform CPR and first aid can act within their expertise. Those who are not trained should remain calm and stay with the person. Crowding is generally not helpful unless the -presence of others is required.
  4. Have someone stand outside the building to flag down LCPD or ambulance when they arrive.
  5. Once the victim has been cared for and transported normal worker injury procedures should be followed if applicable.
