Any employee who detects an emergency will IMMEDIATELY contact the Knoxville 911 Center by
dialing 911, by using a blue phone or by dialing 4-3114 for UT Police. The employee will notify
his/her supervisor when doing so is safe. If the supervisor is not available, contact their designee.

The caller should provide the following information:

  • Facility name
  • Exact location (building name, street address and room number)
  • Caller’s name
  • Type of emergency
  • Nature of the emergency
  • Number of persons or animals affected
  • Name of hazardous materials involved, if known
  • Action taken to control the incident

The dispatcher may ask for additional details, and the appropriate emergency agencies will be notified and routed to the incident. ALWAYS LET THE DISPATCHER HANG UP FIRST. UT Police will contact the Agricultural Campus Zone Coordinator.

Assessment and notification of off-site facilities potentially affected by an emergency at the Agricultural Campus are the responsibilities of Knox County Emergency Management Agency (KCEMA).
