Emergency Phones

The Brandeis campus is equipped with a series of blue light emergency phones. Emergency phone locations are viewable on the campus map. These phones have both an emergency call button and a general call button. They operate as follows:

Emergency Call box
  • Emergency Call Button (red): The red button automatically contacts the Police Dispatch Center, activating two-way communications at that location. Once the dispatcher acknowledges the call, the caller can provide the police with any relevant information related to the emergency. Police officers will be dispatched to the proper location.
  • General Call Button: This button connects the caller to the Police Dispatch Center, activating two-way communications at that location. Once the dispatcher acknowledges the call, the caller can provide the police with any relevant information related to their situation (e.g., reporting a suspicious person, asking for directions, reporting a disabled vehicle).
