911 is in your pocket


Campus has never been so connected to emergency service! Did you know that if you call 911 while on campus, you will be transferred directly to U police where they can dispatch assistance immediately? Because of this service, many of the old emergency phones scattered around campus—whose technology was considered cutting edge in 1989—are coming down.

With a cell phone in every pocket, the old campus e-phone system is outdated, unused, and will be removed from most areas (academic campus) and re-evaluated in others (parking garages).

Perhaps you’ve noticed new wraps on some of the old phones with the message: Need 911? It’s in your pocket. If not, you soon will. Consider it a reminder to use 911 on campus. For questions or comments, contact Marty Shaub or call her at 801-585-9311.
