Emergency Info

Risk Management Services (RMS) partners with other campus entities to assist in preparing for, and responding to emergency situations on campus.  RMS is a member of the Campus Emergency Response Team.  We encourage all students, faculty, and staff to familiarize themselves with the contents of the Campus Emergency Response Plan.

Emergency Procedures

Fire – Medical – Police – Haz Mat Response

  • The quickest and easiest way to obtain professional help for any type of emergency, anytime day or night, is to phone:


Dialing 9-1-1 from any university land line phone will directly connect you with University Police. If calling from a cell phone, you will get the local emergency telephone system. Identify the location as "The University of Arizona" and you will immediately be connected to UAPD.

  • When calling to report an emergency, stay calm, identify yourself, and carefully explain the problem and location to the dispatcher. Remain on the phone until the dispatcher tells you to hang up. If you cannot stay on the line, tell the dispatcher that you must leave and where you can be reached.

Keep Yourself Calm – Keep Others Calm
