Blue Light Emergency Phones

In order to maintain safety, Central Michigan University maintains an emergency outdoor phone system.

In various locations across campus, a Blue Light and Yellow Phone Box have been installed on the outside of a building or to a pole.

Once you have located the Blue Light Emergency Phone, press the red "CALL" button on the yellow box and your call will go to the Police dispatcher. Use the phone in an emergency, to report a suspicious person, or to contact the CMU Police for any reason. 

All locations are tested every other week to ensure they are operational. When any defects are found, they are fixed promptly. If you find a blue light phone which is in need of repair (e.g. not working, not lit, etc.) please contact the CMU Police Department.

View the Blue Lights on the Campus Map.
