Medical Emergencies

​Call 911 on a college or district service location phone.

If a college/district phone is not available, use any available phone, dial District Central Dispatch at 972-860-4290 and:

  • Initiate lifesaving measures if required and you are trained to do so.
  • Do not move an injured person unless there is a danger of further harm.
  • Keep the injured person warm.
  • Remain with the victim until medical assistance arrives.
  • Have a designated person meet emergency personnel when they arrive and escort them to the location.
  • Report the incident.

Medical Transportation

  • The district will not assume payment for ambulance transportation.
  • Individuals refusing transportation by ambulance are solely responsible for the decision. An individual cannot be forced to accept medical assistance.
  • Individuals refusing ambulance transportation to a medical facility will be responsible for their transportation to a medical facility: i.e., getting transportation from a friend or family member.

Note: The district is not liable for accidents or injuries involving transporting a person in a privately owned vehicle.
