If you have an emergency, dial 911. You do NOT need any coins to dial 911 from a pay telephone. Simply lift the handset and dial 911. IMPORTANT: Because cell phone 911 calls are directed to the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Department through cell towers without exact location displayed, be sure to inform the 911 dispatcher of your exact location on the UCA campus.

Conway Fire Department and Metro Emergency Medical System (MEMS) personnel are trained and certified as Emergency Medical Technicians. They will respond to medical emergencies on campus. Any injury occurring because of an existing hazardous condition should be reported to the UCAPD 911 Dispatcher.

EMERGENCY ACTION

The following is a brief summary of the procedures for requesting medical assistance.

  • Dial 911.
  • Provide:
    • Your name and telephone number.
    • Location of the emergency (Building and Room Number).
    • The extent of the accident/injury and number of people involved.
    • Location where someone will meet the emergency personnel for directing them to the injured.

The individual making the call should continue to stay on the phone with the dispatcher and answer as many questions as possible regarding the condition of the injured person so that information can be forwarded to the responding emergency personnel.

Illness or injury to students, faculty, or staff

Medical assistance can be provided faculty, staff, and students by Student Health Services if the individual needing assistance is ambulatory. Student Health Services provides treatment of minor injuries and illness during scheduled operating hours of 8:30 A.M to 4:30 P.M. Monday – Friday.

Otherwise, call 911 to request assistance from UCAPD.

Illness or injury to guests and visitors

Call the UCA PD Communications Center to request emergency medical assistance by dialing 911, (501) 450-3111 or using a blue light emergency phone.

First Aid

If you provide first aid, consider the following:

  1. Is immediate action needed in order to save a life?
  2. Will I place myself in harm or jeopardy?

FIRST AID IS MINOR CARE ONLY . . . DO NOT JEOPARDIZE YOUR HEALTH OR THE HEALTH OF THE PATIENT. WAIT FOR PROFESSIONAL HELP IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO PROVIDE FIRST AID SAFELY OR ARE NOT TRAINED IN FIRST AID.
