    Make sure you state the nature of the emergency, location (building and room number), name, phone number, and any other pertinent information.

    Calling 911 from a cell phone reaches the neighboring public safety center whose jurisdiction includes the cell tower that received the call. Depending on the nature of the call (fire, medical, and law enforcement), on-campus incidents will be transferred to the appropriate agency, including The University of West Alabama Police Department (UWAPD).

    Dialing 911 from a campus phone, however, connects directly to UWAPD.
