Emergencies

EHS is not an emergency service. We train and coordinate with emergency services, but we are not a means to receive emergency services. Never leave a request for emergency assistance as an email or voicemail message.

For emergencies please call 911 or 865-974-3111 (UT Police).

Urgent Needs

An urgent need is a need for which no immediate life safety risk exists, but the situation requires or is best handled with assistance from EHS.An example might be a minor chemical spill, where no one is at immediate risk, but assistance or advise is needed to clean it properly.

For needs related to problems that could become worse if not addressed soon, please contact us EHS at 865-974-5084. If there is no answer (or it is after business hours) and you need immediate assistance please contact UT Police at 865-974-3111 (emergency) or 865-974-3114 (main line). The dispatch officer will alert the person On-Call.
