Emergency (“Blue Light”) phone locations

For your safety, there are over 70 emergency blue light telephones located across the campus. These phones only require one button to be pushed and the call will ring directly into the Appalachian Police Telecommunications Center. The blue light phone system automatically identifies the caller's location so the telecommunicator can quickly dispatch an officer to assist the caller. These phones are located at residence hall entrances, in parking lots, in tunnels and other strategic locations.
