If you witness or are involved in an emergency at Lafayette, call for emergency services by dialing (610) 330-4444.
When (610) 330-4444 is called, Public Safety personnel are dispatched to the scene, and appropriate emergency services are notified. On campus there are fifty-three (53) emergency telephones (or “blue light phones”) that connect to the emergency line in the Department of Public Safety. When one of these phones is activated, the Public Safety dispatcher is automatically given the location of the phone and Public Safety personnel are dispatched.
The Incident Action Plan (IAP) designates the Department of Public Safety as the initial contact for reporting all emergency situations and for response to and resolution of all emergencies.
Upon receiving the report of an emergency, the Director of Public Safety or designee will make an initial judgment about the level of response required and will communicate with appropriate personnel as outlined in the plan.
