Emergency Phones

The University has installed 24 emergency phones around campus, which connect directly to the Public Safety Dispatcher. Everyone is encouraged to familiarize themselves with the location and operation of the emergency phones.

Operation

Pushing the large red button on the faceplate activates the phone. Once pushed, the phone is automatically dialed and the blue light on top of the pole will begin to flash. The phone used is cellular which takes approximately 12 seconds to complete the call. The dispatcher has caller ID that allows Public Safety to know the location of the phone in use even if the person calling doesn't. The unit has a two-way speaker so there is no hand set to deal with.

Use

The phones are intended to be used to communicate with Public Safety whenever a person needs assistance. This includes true emergencies such as those involving a criminal act or medical situation or something as simple as requesting directions or assistance with a jump-start.
