Blue Light Call Box Information

Anyone on campus requiring security assistance has access to several Security Blue Light Call Boxes. These call boxes can be used for emergency and non-emergency assistance (medical emergencies, disabled vehicles, etc.).

They are simple to operate. Just press and release the red button and follow the voice instructions. You will initially hear a telephone-ringing sound identifying the call box location, followed by voice instructions and then confirmation that assistance is on the way. The location of the call box is broadcast over the security channel on the portable radios that all security guards carry.

At this point, a security guard will contact you over the call box to ascertain what kind of assistance you require. You then press and hold the red button to talk and release to listen.

It is important that you answer the guard. If the guards get no response from you and the CCTV footage can't be accessed fast enough, we will assume that it is an emergency and several guards will respond to your location immediately.

In addition to the Blue Light Call Boxes, you can call 917.209.3625 on your cell phone or dial the number three (3) on any campus phone to reach security 24/7.
