UW-Green Bay Public Safety has updated emergency action guides across the Green Bay Campus. The charts provide a quick reference for how members of the campus community should respond in the event of a variety of emergency situations. Look for these laminated guides printed on canary yellow legal-sized signs. They are customized with building address and room number for each space on campus that occupants can use to provide a location to emergency dispatchers. The most notable update in the guide is that emergencies should be reported by calling 911, regardless of if the caller is on or off campus. An electronic file is available for those who wish to download it to have handy on their personal mobile device.
Emergency.uwgb.edu, the official UW-Green Bay Emergency Information site was also updated this fall. In the event of an emergency, this website will be updated frequently with instructions and information about the incident, campus services and resources available to the UW-Green Bay community.
