Emergency Phones/ Yellow Call Boxes
In an effort to provide a safe campus environment, yellow emergency call boxes (blue light emergency phones) have been installed at strategic locations around the campus. Emergency telephones are located across campus to enable you easy access to call for help. Phones are mounted on poles across campus and marked “emergency” with a blue light on top.
These phones provide a direct connection to our police communications department, which is staffed 24 hours a day including holidays and weekends. The emergency call boxes are identifiable by the large signage and flashing blue strobe light.
There are two types of Emergency Phones:
- Receiver Phone, lift the telephone receiver press the red button and speak into the receiver.
- Ring Down telephone, just push the call button and speak into the vented box.
