Boxes are located through out most of the campus. These boxes
are located in most of the garages and other strategic areas on
campus. The boxes have a steady blue light that is illuminated to
assist persons in locating the box should they need assistance from
the police department. " Emergency " is printed on the
boxes in large blue lettering. To operate the box, simply press
the button on the base of the box. One will hear a phone ringing
and the communication's officer will answer it. When the box is
activated, a second blue light flashes on top of the box.
Phones on campus are programmed to automatically dial the police
communications office. These phones are mounted to the inside of
the elevator and can be accessed by opening a small door inside
the elevator. Operating the phone is very simple, just pick up the
phone and it will automatically ring the police communications office.
Phones are located throughout campus on various building floors
and areas that are generally accessible to the public. Some house
phones are located next to public pay telephones. A few house phones
are located outside some buildings. They are typically found inside
a small telephone call box next to or near building loading dock
areas. To contact the police department, dial 88311.
Lot Speaker Intercom is typically located at the entrance or
exits of any parking lot or garage structure. The intercom button
is usually mounted next to a small speaker located near the gate's
card access reader or pay slots. If assistance is needed, simply
press the button. The communications office will automatically ring.
Alarm Pull Stations In the event of an emergency situation,
and you cannot get to a telephone or other communication device
as mentioned previously, activate a fire alarm pull station. There
are pull stations located in all buildings and most of the parking
garages on campus. Activation of this alarm will initiate an emergency
response from the University police, Safety, and Physical Plant
It is stressed that activation of the fire alarm system should only
be done in cases of emergencies and when there is no means or time
to get to a telephone. Initiating a false alarm is a violation of
law! Violators will be prosecuted!
