Students or faculty who become ill or experience an injury while at the College should immediately call Security using a campus Emergency phone (which connects directly to their office), or by calling ext. 8370 from a campus phone or 908-231-8800 from a cell phone.

1.    Locate the fire alarm and emergency exit nearest your room, as well as an alternate exit.

2.      Fires should be reported immediately by activating the nearest fire alarm and/or notifying any College official, the SecurityOffice and/or the switchboard operator.
