For all emergency situations, students, faculty, and staff are to remove themselves from personal danger before contacting anyone for assistance.

Life-Threatening Emergencies

In the event of an emergency on campus that appears to be life threatening or will require municipal services (Fire, Police or Ambulance) to be contacted, all students, faculty, and staff are to call 911 (ext. 9911 from an on-campus phone). Once the information is confirmed by the 911 operator, the student, faculty, or staff member needs to call (425) 629-5006 (ext. 5006 from an on-campus phone) OR (425) 445-4453 to report that 911 has been called, and to give a brief description of the event. After the immediate emergency has passed and while details are still easily recollected, the caller should fill out an Incident Report Form. Incident Reports are investigated and kept on file in the Student Affairs Department.

Non-Life-Threatening Emergencies

For non-life threatening events on campus, all students, faculty, and staff should call (425) 629-5006 (ext. 5006 from an on-campus phone) OR (425) 445-4453. The caller needs to provide the responder a brief description of the event and follow any instructions that the responder gives. The caller then should fill out an Incident Report Form. Incident Reports are investigated and kept on file in the Student Affairs Department.
