Emergency Information

Emergency phones are located at various shuttle stops, parking lots, parking garages, and pedestrian walk areas throughout campus. Emergency phones automatically connect to Public Safely when activated. The Public Safety officer will know your location, even if you cannot speak into the phone, and will dispatch an officer to the location immediately to investigate.

The Emergency Phones are very easy to use. They are designed for one button contact and dialing is not necessary.

Emergency Phone Panel

Many of these Emergency phones also have speakers for our campus wide PA system. If there is a known threat in the area, these emergency phones will announce the threat and provide emergency instructions.

Courtesy phones are located in most campus buildings. Instructional signage is located at each courtesy phone location. Signage includes instruction for placing emergency calls in addition to placing on-campus and local calls.

If an emergency or courtesy phone is not available dial 911 from the nearest campus phone.

Use these phones without hesitancy for:

  • Emergency information
  • Fire alert
  • Medical assistance
  • Police assistance
  • Reporting crimes or suspicious persons

NOTE:  A mandatory update to Javascript has rendered the PA system inoperative across campus. The vendor of the system is actively working on a different approach that should get this feature back in service by May 1st, 2016.
