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.

These phones are located at residence hall entrances, in parking lots, in tunnels and other strategic locations.
