Emergency Contact

Emergency contact should be made with The School for Field Studies (SFS) Headquarters office in Beverly, Massachusetts, at 978-741-3544. Office hours are 8:30am to 5:00pm (Eastern) Monday through Friday.

At all other times SFS maintains a 24-hour emergency message system while students are in the field. This system is for reporting family emergencies that require immediate contact with a student in the field, or to report a problem with a student in transit to or from one of the SFS field stations.

To leave a message, which will page a staff member, call 978-741-3544; once prompted, press 2 for the emergency system. While headquarters’ staff know the whereabouts of student groups at all times, it may require 24 hours or more to make contact in some cases.

NOTE: Problems or emergencies that arise in the field will be reported directly to the SFS Safety Department. SFS will then contact appropriate parties as necessary.
