Medical and First Aid

  1. If a serious injury or illness occurs on campus, immediately call the University Police at 911. Give your name, describe the nature and severity of the medical problem, and give the campus location of the victim.
    1. NOTE: The University Police Department has a direct line to Emergency Medical Services. Officers can render First Aid and CPR.
  2. In case of minor injury or illness, provide first aid care. Use first aid materials located in the building. Be sure to restock the first aid supply kits as materials are used.
  3. In case of serious injury or illness:
    • Keep victim still and comfortable. DO NOT MOVE VICTIM.
    • Ask victim, “Are you okay?” and “What is wrong?”
    • Check breathing and give rescue breathing if necessary (If trained).
    • Control serious bleeding by direct pressure on the wound.
    • Continue to assist the victim until help arrives.
    • Look for emergency medical I.D. on the victim, question witnesses, and give all information to the University Police.
  4. First Aid and CPR are lifesaving skills. All members of the campus community are encouraged to take First Aid and CPR classes. Some automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are also available. The following volunteers in your building and/or area are trained in first aid and CPR:
