Eastern Illinois University Police

Emergency Phones

There are 22 emergency phones placed strategically throughout high traffic areas on campus. The phones are located in tall blue towers and easily identifiable by the ever lit blue light. A push of the button activates the phone and causes the blue light to flash. A dispatcher will answer and ask if police, fire, or medical authorities are needed. Regardless of if there is a voice answer, an EIU UPD officer is dispatched immediately to the activated phone. These phones are for EMERGENCY use only and prank activation will result in prosecution of the offender.
