Emergency Blue Phone Program

Blue emergency telephones are strategically placed around the Mines campus. When activated, the phones provide a direct connection via a 911 line to the Golden Police communications center. When the phone is in use, a blue strobe light is activated which not only calls immediate attention to that particular area but also assists emergency responders for a more direct response. In addition, some of the phones are equipped with a public address system and are part of the campus Emergency Notification System.

Emergency announcements can also be broadcast through this system.

To use the phones, press the red emergency button. Wait for the dispatcher to answer and explain the problem.
