Campus Emergency Blue Light Telephones

Emergency telephones, easily identified at night by the bright blue lights located on top of a red pole marked emergency, are situated at strategic locations throughout the campus for emergency use. If you need to report a suspicious incident, medical emergency, or request immediate police assistance, simply activate an emergency phone by pressing the red call for help button.

Once depressed, the call is immediately linked to the university 911 police dispatch center that indicates the location of origin. Speak clearly into the microphone while stating the exact nature of the emergency. The police dispatcher will summon assistance to the location. In the event a caller does not respond or is unable to speak; a university police officer will be immediately dispatched to the location to investigate.

Each emergency telephone is inspected and tested by police officers on a monthly basis.
