Emergency Procedures

Emergency Notifications

In the event of an emergency or major crime on campus, notify Campus Police by calling the emergency number, 903–510–2222. This number is reserved strictly for incoming phone calls to the Campus Police office. An officer is on duty 24 hours a day. During evening hours, contact the Campus Police duty officer at 903–510–2222.

Campus Police will notify the appropriate dean or vice president of all medical emergencies involving students, employees or visitors to campus. Appropriate notification will then be made by the person or persons identified as an emergency situation contact.

Medical Emergencies/Accidents

Subjects suffering injuries or illness will not be transported to medical facilities in Campus Police patrol vehicles. If a subject requires transportation to a medical facility, campus safety will contact Emergency Medical Services (EMS). Under no circumstances may an employee of the College transport an injured or ill student or visitor from the campus.

In the event of a medical emergency or accident involving Tyler Junior College students, employees or visitors to campus, contact the Campus Police officer on duty at 903–510–2222 or call 911, then notify Campus Police that 9-1-1 has been called. The Campus Police officer will render temporary medical assistance and contact the Campus Clinic (903-510-3862), or call 911 for Emergency Medical Services (EMS). If in the opinion of the person reporting the medical emergency or accident the situation is life threatening, call 911 for immediate assistance, then notify Campus Police at 903–510–2222.

Campus Police officers responding to the scene of a medical emergency or accident will administer first aid as necessary, and complete and disseminate appropriately a Medical Emergency/Accident Report. Employees are expected to report any medical/accident incident regardless of the severity.

  • Name of individual

This information should be phoned to the Campus Police office for documentation and distribution to the appropriate campus personnel.
