Emergency call boxes
The University has added and upgraded Blue Light Emergency call boxes (also known as DEACStations) throughout campus. The DEACStations have 360-degree camera views. When the emergency button is pressed, University police are immediately alerted. A map with locations for Blue Light call boxes can be found here.
Addresses have been added to nearly every area of campus, including parking lots, athletic fields, storage areas, and Hearn and Manchester Plazas. The address can be used with GPS navigation apps and will help emergency responders pinpoint precisely where to go on campus in the event of a 911 call. Reynolda Campus maps have been updated to include the new addresses.
Telephone Boxes are located near some building entrances. Pick up the receiver and dial 911 to reach a dispatcher.
