This Emergency Response Guide contains instructions to assist members of the Tufts Community in responding to a variety of emergencies that may affect a Tufts campus. The most important information you can use in an emergency is the number to contact Tufts Police, shown here, and shown in the right-hand column of each page in the guide. It’s suggested that you program the 10-digit emergency and non-emergency numbers into your cellphone for your particular Tufts campus.
