Safety is our top priority at Cal U.

Please review this information from the online Quick Reference Guide for Emergencies.

Remember: Report any suspicious activity to Cal U Police at 724-938-4299. 

From the Quick Reference Guide for Emergencies:

To report an incident or emergency

  1. From a safe location, report all emergencies to the Office of Public Safety by dialing “HELP” from a campus phone, *1 from a campus public pay phone or 724-938-4299 from a cellular phone. 
  2. In case of an emergency off campus, dial 911
  3. When calling, stay calm and carefully explain the problem and location to the officer.

If a suspicious object or potential bomb is observed, do not handle the object. Call California University Police at Ext. 4299 or 724-938-4299. 

Clear the area immediately according to the building evacuation instructions listed below.

If you receive a written bomb threat, set it aside and call Public Safety at Ext. 4299 or 724-938-4299. Do not handle the note or the letter further.

Building evacuation procedure if there is suspicion of a bomb in the building

  1. Employees, faculty, and students should not search on their own. Opening and closing doors, drawers, and cabinets or turning off lights may activate the bomb.
  2. The building should be cleared as quickly as possible but do not activate the fire alarm system as this may activate the bomb.
  3. Elevators should not be used as this may activate the bomb.
  4. Once outside, persons should move at least 500 feet away from the affected building and stay clear of walkways and streets that may be used by emergency vehicles and crews. 
  5. Do not return to an evacuated building unless permitted to do so by a Public Safety Officer.
