Trent University has over 50 emergency phones that are either pole or wall mounted and topped with a blue light that begins to strobe when the red emergency button is activated.
The units in Peterborough are yellow in colour for daytime visibility with the word "Emergency" in large blue letters. Each phone has a two button keypad.
- The RED button is for emergency use and will initiate an immediate response by Campus Security.
- The BLACK button connects you to the Trent University automated attendant for free internal calls.
The telephones do not require any money to be deposited and there is no receiver for you to pick up.
Vandalism or unwarranted activation of an emergency phone jeopardizes the safety of others. For this reason, these actions will be taken very seriously by Campus Security. Misuse of the emergency telephones may by subject to disciplinary or legal action.
