In case of emergency on campus

Should there be a serious emergency – medical, fire, etc. – call TWO numbers in the order below.

First call: 9-1-1

For Dutchess County Emergency Services. It is available 24/7.

Second call: (845) 758-7777 or from emergency call boxes: 7777

For Bard College Emergency Medical Services (a trained campus emergency response team).

Bard EMS is always to be called second. While the service provides the fastest response, it follows the college academic schedule and is therefore not always available.
