Emergency Procedures

  •  In an emergency, time is critical and getting answers FAST could mean the difference between life and death.  

    Extension 55 (on campus) 
    201.200.3128 (cell or off campus phone) 

    NJCU Public Safety personnel will coordinate with JC Emergency Personnel to assist as needed. All Public Safety Personnel are trained in First-Aid, CPR and AED and will assist until emergency services arrive. Do not attempt to move an injured person until Public Safety personnel arrive.

    If possible, please describe:

    • nature of injury
    • name of injured party
    • age of injured party
    • if the injured party is conscious or breathing

    If 911 has already been contacted, please contact Public Safety so that they may coordinate and assist with their arrival to the emergency scene.

    If emergency services should arrive on campus without Public Safety's knowledge, valuable time may be lost. 

    Crime in Progress: 

    Contact Public Safety immediately with location and information. Do NOT attempt to engage the perpetrator as he or she may be armed and dangerous.

    Suspicious Person: 

    Please contact Public Safety and note the location and description of the person. Public Safety will make contact and take action as necessary.

    Emergency Telephones

    Emergency Telephones are located strategically throughout the campus. Use them to report emergencies, crimes, suspicious behaviors, accidents and hazards. The campus emergency call boxes are easily identified by the red and white “emergency phones signs” located above the telephones.
