Blue Light Phones

To enhance the safety and security of our community, 9 blue light emergency phones were installed on the MSU campus in January of 2009. Each phone has an emergency button and an information button. When the emergency button is depressed, the blue strobe light is activated and the phone connects with the 911 emergency line at the university police department, putting the caller in contact with a police dispatcher. Any time the emergency button is depressed, officers are immediately dispatched to the location of the activated blue light phone. When the information button is depressed, the phone connects to the non-emergency phone line at the university police department for general information. While the primary function of the blue light phones is to provide added safety and security, the information button is an ancillary feature that makes the blue light phones useful not only in rare emergencies, but on a daily basis for people wanting quick answers to questions regarding the university. The blue light phones are also environmentally friendly, as 7 of the 9 phones are powered by solar panels.
