Reporting Emergencies

Emergency situations often arise unexpectedly. When an emergency situation occurs, it is important to know:

  1. Who to contact.
  2. Where to contact them from.
  3. What to report.

The Public Safety department relies upon all members of the campus community to assist in making the campus a safe place by reporting emergencies and suspected criminal activity immediately to the Public Safety department by dialing the campus emergency number, extension 3411 (or 734-973-3411, if calling from an off-campus location). Campus telephones are labeled on the handset with this number. Free campus “House Phones” are located in the lobbies and hallways of campus buildings. Public Safety department Staff are available 24 hours a day to respond to emergency calls.

When notifying the Public Safety department of a potential emergency, or suspected criminal activity, be prepared to provide the following information:

  • Type of incident or activity, location of incident, description of persons involved (if criminal in nature).
  • Suspected injury or condition (if medical emergency).
  • Your name, location, and number calling from.

This information will aid Public Safety department staff in their response and subsequent handling of the incident. You should remain available to assist the Public Safety department staff with any required additional information once they arrive. Public Safety department staff will notify additional medical and/or law enforcement support as needed.
