Medical Emergency Procedure

Medical Emergency Procedure

If there is a serious physical injury or illness on campus at any time (when the need for an ambulance is obvious), do the following:

  • If possible, administer immediate first aid as appropriate.
  • Call 911 and ask for Medic Rescue to send an ambulance if the need for one is obvious. Otherwise, call University Police. If necessary, the police will call an ambulance or contact the campus nurse. The Beaver County Emergency Services Center will notify University Police any time an ambulance is dispatched to campus. Never hesitate to call 911. 

Minor Injury or Illness

  • In the event of a minor injury or illness that requires attention, see the campus nurse in room 104, Ross Administration Building, or arrange for transportation to a private doctor or emergency room. You can also call University Police for assistance.
  • An incident report must be filed with Penn State Beaver Police in the event of any injury on campus.
