Emergency Blue Light Call Boxes


Emergency Blue Lights-Call Boxes
The Boston College campuses are equipped with over 100 emergency call boxes. These units, identified by the blue light on top, are strategically placed throughout campus, as well as in the parking garages. In an emergency, a call box is activated by pressing the emergency button on the front, you are immediately connected with the Boston College Police Department. This activation creates an open line of communication between the person requiring emergency assistance and the police dispatcher.

A map designating the locations of the emergency call boxes can be obtained if you visit the police department and obtain a copy in our lobby.
