Call 911 in an emergency

An emergency is where there is an immediate threat to life or property that requires immediate response from ambulance, fire or police. This will connect to the Brown County Public Safety Communications Centers who dispatches University Police Officer, Fire, and Rescue personnel. 

They will in turn send the appropriate emergency services, including UWGB Public Safety. They may ask you questions like:
  • The nature of the emergency?‚Äč
  • Where is the emergency? (Building, room number, what is it near)
  • Is anyone injured, ill, or in danger?
  • When did it happen?
  • Does anyone have access to weapons?
  • Your name?
  • What phone number can you be reached at if we need to call you back?
Examples of emergency situations can be:
  • An accident with possible injuries, or road blockage
  • Crimes in progress (one taking place right now or just took place) such as an assault, burglary, robbery, theft, etc.

Call 2300 when there is NO emergency, but an officer is still needed.
