Emergency blue phones
Memorial University has installed a number of emergency phones on St. John's and Grenfell campuses to enhance the personal safety of students, faculty, staff, and visitors. The phones are connected by a fibre optic system, and each phone has a push button which gives the user instant contact with Campus Enforcement & Patrol's (CEP) Communications Control Centre (CCC). The user can talk with a CEP officer and inform him/her of what is wrong. Simultaneously, the officer can see the user as all phones have a surveillance camera located nearby which allows the Officer to determine the nature of the emergency. When the button is pushed, the location of the phone comes up in the CCC, thus allowing CEP to know immediately where the phone is located. The officer can talk to the user while dispatching other officers to that location. Each phone has a blue light, which will activate when the button is pushed. This will alert the university community that an emergency situation is in progress.

This feature is also available virtually in the MUN Safe app's Mobile BlueLight button for some campuses.

All incidents and/or accidents on the university campus involving actual or potential danger to life or property should be communicated immediately to the Campus Enforcement and Patrol Office.
