Emergency Procedure and Incident Reporting

What to Do in an Emergency

At Glasgow Caledonian University

  • If an incident occurs on campus, immediately contact a member of staff or telephone Ext 2222 and ask for a First Aider to be contacted. They will be trained in and conversant with the relative incident procedure.

At Another University

  • If an incident occurs at another University or sports facility, follow instructions from an official representative of that institution. 
  • Make arrangements for the group to return as appropriate.

At Any Other Time

  • Contact the emergency services if required or undertake first aid where appropriate.
  • Make arrangements for the group to return as appropriate.

NB* Do not make any comment to the media, should they contact you about an incident, refer them to the University.
