Emergency call boxes
||You will find emergency telephones or emergency call boxes
strategically placed for your use throughout the campus. All call
boxes are clearly marked and posted on the external sides of
buildings or on tall red poles with white letters that read
emergency. All call boxes display a continuously lit blue location
light that is located near the top of the box. This light helps
identify box location during nighttime hours. The call boxes
themselves are safety yellow in color with black and white
descriptive print. All call boxes are of hands free operation.
We encourage you to use them in any emergency situation or
during any concern of urgency.
- All call boxes display a large red help button for your use to
place a call.
- Below the red help button each call box displays a red call
received light. The call received light (when lit) indicates that
Public Safety received your call.
- On caller activation the location light will begin to flash
drawing other attention to activity at the box location. This
action is continuous until reset within the Office of Public
Instructions for call box use
Your call is initiated by a single action. Simply press the red
help button. When depressed a single time with the touch of a
finger, the box automatically connects you directly with the Office
of Public Safety. Two-way voice communication then takes place
between the caller and Public Safety. State your message as if
speaking on a telephone. Public Safety will stay on the line with
you until unit arrival.
