Using the Emergency Telephone

Simply push the red button and the caller will automatically be connected to the Public Safety 911 Communications Center. The 911 Communications Operators there will notify the appropriate emergency services. The Emergency telephone's campus location is automatically identified and an officer will always be dispatched. The campus video system has also been developed to cover many freestanding emergency telephones.
