LabAlert FAQs

Calling 9-1-1 From the Lab

If you call 911 from the main Lab location, the call will go to the UC Berkeley Police Department, and the appropriate emergency response -- medical, fire, or police -- will be dispatched to the Lab location.

If you call x6999 from a Lab phone, or 510-486-6999 from a mobile or non-Lab phone, the call goes to the Lab’s Security Operations Center or SOC which is staffed 24 hours a day. The call is triaged for an appropriate response.

If you are offsite, a 911 call will go to the appropriate local public safety agency. If you do call 911 from an offsite location, please follow-up with a call to 510-486-6999 to activate the Lab's emergency response system.
