Douglas College > Student Services > Support > Counselling > After hours emergency
If it's after hours and you need help with a personal emergency, there are community agencies that are available to assist you after 4:30pm and on weekends and holidays. If the first line you try is busy, you can try any of the other numbers - even if they are not in your area.
If you are in danger or fear for another person’s safety, call 911 and Douglas College Security (if on campus). Security can be reached at 2400 on internal phones and from cell phones at 604 527 5405 (NWC) and 604 777 6254 (COQ).
