Who to call:
What to do:
- During working hours:

- The receptionist will page the LLE Medial Emergency Response Team (Emergency Medical Technicians and those qualified
in CPR/AED and first aid).

- Your name and the name(s) of the injured person(s)
- Your location
- Telephone extension from which you called
- Description of medical emergency
- Enlist help and stay with the injured person until help arrives.

- While waiting for help, ask for proper medical procedures by phone.
- Do not unnecessarily expose yourself to hazards including fire, laser or nuclear radiation, electricity, chemicals, or bodily fluids.
- It is the responsibility of the hosts to brief visitors on these procedures.
- Emergency protocols should not be initiated for non-acute (non-life-threatening) situations; personal physicians should be contacted; colleagues may assist with transportation to a medical facility in non-emergency situations.
- If a personal physician is not available during LLE business hours, access to the University Health Service (x52662) should be considered.
- The Strong Memorial Hospital's Emergency Department can be accessed when medical care is not available through your private physician or University Health Service.
- On-the-job injuries must be reported to John Schoen and Dave VanWey within 1 business day of the injury.
