General Emergency Recommendations

It is important to remember these key points in any emergency situation:

Check the Scene

Before responding to any ill, injured, or emotionally upset person, determine the safety of the situation or scene before approaching the victim or victims. Protecting personal safety and the safety of bystanders is critical.

Call for Help

Once the situation or scene is judged safe, priority must be given to the ill or injured person or persons. The first person on the scene should if at all possible, stay with the person in need and direct someone else to call Public Safety. f there is no one to make the call, determine if the victim is awake and alert. If the person is not responding, leave them briefly to call for assistance and return immediately. It is very important to get trained emergency response personnel to the scene as soon as possible, so do not delay in calling for help. Do not try to manage the emergency situation without the support to trained emergency responders and proper emergency equipment and supplies.

Assist the Victim

Once the call is made for help, return to the victim and do what you can to assist them.

Afterhours Care

When Student Health is closed, students who are sick or injured but not in need of emergency care in a hospital can be treated at MASH Urgent Care.  Through a unique agreement, MASH Urgent Care will provide free round trip van service to a MASH Urgent Care Center 7 days a week.

MASH vans pick up and return students to any of the college regular shuttle stops.  Although the ride is free, care provided is billed to student’s health insurance plan.  It is important to bring your health insurance card and photo identification to your MASH visit.
