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With a cell phone in every pocket, the old campus e-phone system is outdated, unused, and will be removed from most areas (academic campus) and re-evaluated in others (parking garages).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