Most people on campus are probably unfamiliar with the backup system we have on campus to provide limited telephone service for emergency use if the regular telephone system fails. (At least, the folks with whom I spoke knew nothing about it.) So here’s the deal:
The full procedure and the locations of red emergency phones is listed in the campus phone directory on our intranet under general information / telecom; however, it has not been updated to reflect that we have one in Bennett Hall room 5005A which is the workroom in the Associate Dean’s suite. This phone is only functional when the regular system is down.
If you haven’t looked at the new online phone directory, be sure to check it out. Lots of great information, easy lookups, and terrific maps that even have pictures!
(Pictures are awesome.)
