If you or someone else requires medical assistance, call – or have someone else call – Campus Security at 705-748-1333 in Peterborough or 905-435-5111 in Oshawa immediately. Give the exact location of the injured/ill party, the type of injury/illness and what, if any, first aid is being administered. During the Academic year on the Symons Campus, Campus Security will dispatch the Trent University Emergency First Response Team (TUEFRT). Campus Security is available to respond to any call for medical assistance 365 days per year.
If you determine that the nature of the medical emergency is life threatening, contact 911 and Campus Security. Security Staff will assist emergency personnel in locating you. It is very important when calling 911 that you be aware of your building address. Each building on the Trent University Symons Campus has a different address.
Once you are on the scene of a medical emergency, survey the area to make sure no danger exists. If the area is safe, administer first aid until help arrives.
