  • If the event is in its initial stage and has not reached a critical point, call the Public Safety Office at 864-5900.
  • Provide the address, location and as many details as possible to the dispatcher.
  • Do not provoke or become involved in the disturbance.
  • Secure your work area, log off computers and secure sensitive files, if safe to do so.
  • If the disturbance is outside, stay away from doors and windows. Remain inside.
