Subject: 911 Calling Procedures for Campus Emergencies

From: Rick Tubbs, Office of Public Safety

There have been a few incidents on campus this semester when members of the campus community have dialed 911 for assistance with medical emergencies.  While this should be your first course of action for an emergency, please remember to also follow this procedure to give responders your location and follow up with Public Safety:

  1. When calling 911, be sure to give the exact location of where you are.  Emergency responders may not know the location of a specific building on campus, so tell them you are at Ringling College and the 2700 N. Tamiami Trail address if you do not know the physical address for the building you are in.  Also give them the name of the building you are in or near.

  2. After calling 911, inform Public Safety (359-7500) of your 911 call and your location on campus. They can assist emergency personnel in locating you when they arrive to campus.
Following these steps will help to expedite the response to the emergency.  If you have questions, please contact me at rtubbs@ringling.edu or 941-351-4742.
