Text on a maroon background stating, "If you need emergency assistance, call 911 immediately." A gold M is undereath.

In the event of an accident, injury, mental health crisis, or other types of emergency, call 911 immediately and then contact your CA, the CA on Duty, or your community's Information Desk for additional support.

Seconds count in an emergency, so don't wait or assume someone else will call.
