How to call an ambulance
To call an Ambulance, press the numbers 9- 9-1-1 on any phone. When your call is answered, try to remain calm. Speak slowly and clearly, and listen to the questions the dispatcher asks you.
Give the address where the emergency is: The Bellevue University Library's address is: 1028 Bruin Blvd. Give the phone number you are calling from, especially if it is a cell phone.
Give the location of victim (such as back hallway.) Tell the dispatcher the nature of the problem. If possible, obtain the victim’s name.
Do Not Hang Up until the dispatcher tells you to. They may need additional information or need to give you instructions. Return to the injured party. (Do not move a seriously injured person unless it is a lifesaving situation.) If possible have someone meet Campus Safety or emergency medical personnel at lot or building entrance.
If the victim is a Bellevue University employee or student, the cost for the ambulance to drive the victim to the hospital is covered by the University. (Per Human Resources).
