Emergency Information


Personal Emergencies

To report sudden emergencies of this type on the Institute campus:

FIRST DIAL 911 from any campus, housing or personal telephone*

If an individual has stopped breathing or a heart attack is suspected, after calling 911

  • WEEKDAYS: contact a nearby IAS staff or faculty member, or dial “0” for the reception desk
  • EVENINGS OR WEEKENDS: call ext. 5460 from an Institute telephone to reach Public Safety while the 911 responders are in transit, or call 609 947-5490 from any telephone.

    Every effort will be made to send an individual trained in AED/CPR techniques to the location of the disabled individual (staff and faculty have a list of those trained in AED/CPR).

*If you dial 911 in error, please do not hang up. Wait for the emergency dispatcher to come on the line and explain that it was a misdial. If you hang up before speaking with the dispatcher, Princeton Emergency Services will be obligated to send a police car to your location to investigate the call.
