Emergency Management

The University of Wisconsin-Platteville places the safety and well-being of students, employees and the public at the top of its priorities. Education, training, testing emergency procedures and crime prevention techniques are UW-Platteville's first priority and includes observation, awareness, risk assessment, planning, and reporting.

In the case of an emergency, dial 911. If you are ever in doubt about a situation being an emergency, it is better to treat it as an emergency! Cell phones can be a valuable asset in an emergency, but there is a possibility that the call is received by an agency outside of your geographical area. You must be prepared to provide as much information as possible, including detailed description of your location.

Assisting persons with disabilities

Students, staff, and faculty with disabilities are vulnerable, like all members of the campus community, to the various disasters and emergencies that might affect the UW-Platteville campus. To mitigate these vulnerabilities, individuals with disabilities should take additional steps to prepare themselves.
