Emergency Phone Locations
Red Emergency Phones
Red emergency phones are located in all buildings and automatically ring Police Services/Public Safety when the receiver is picked up. These phones are attached to the wall with emergency phone signs near them.
Blue Light Emergency Phones
Blue light emergency phones are strategically located throughout the parking areas of the Macon Cove and Union Avenue Campuses. These phones are wired directly to the communications centers and will be video monitored 24/7. The basic operation of the phone is not complicated and they are extremely user friendly.
Director of Police Services/Public Safety James Bolden suggests that for their safety faculty, staff and students become familiar with the blue light emergency phone locations on the Macon Cove and Union Avenue Campuses.
To use the phones, he directed, depress the "talk" button on the blue phone box to connect directly to the Southwest police services/public safety dispatcher. "Speak clearly; do not yell," cautioned Bolden, "and give the following information: your name, your location and the nature of your emergency."
He further advised, "Stay on the line with the dispatcher until the Police Services/Public Safety officer arrives, and be ready to give the dispatcher any further required information."
