**If you are in an emergency situation, dial 911 immediately for law enforcement and medical assistance.**

This quick reference guide provides you with the steps you can take if you or someone you know has recently experienced sexual violence, interpersonal violence, or stalking.  The resources a person may need in the first few days following an incident of violence may be different than the resources a person may need following an incident that occurred several weeks, months, or years ago. For example, certain options for medical treatment and the preservation of physical evidence are more effective immediately following an incident.  You may use as many or as few of the options below as needed.  Keep in mind that there are many different resources available to you, and the resources you may need or want may be different from the resources another person may need or want.
