Blue Light Phone

The Blue Light Phone System provides a direct link to the Public Safety Department and to 911 services. The phone system also has a “Push for Help” button that is to be used in emergency situations as well as an “Info” button for non-emergency situations, such as escort requests, battery jump requests, vehicle lock-outs, and to report minor incidents.
