If an act of violence is in progress or has just happened, priority one is to ensure you are safe. Call 911 if you need immediate help. If you are on NAIT property, you should then call NAIT Protective Services when it is safe to do so at 780.471.7477 or by using the “Emergency Contacts” button on the NAIT Alert mobile app.
