How Emergency Call Stations Have Become Essential on Campuses

Emergency Call Stations

Whether it’s a medical campus or an educational one, emergency call stations have become an essential security feature for many.

Medical campuses and college campuses both may have multiple buildings on site and a lot of area in between them, which often makes it difficult to ensure that the entire area is secure. These campuses may host some of the best and brightest, but there is also a call to invest in the security infrastructure so that students, patients, or staff all feel comfortable traversing the campus even at odd hours. One technology that has gone a long way in securing campuses is emergency call stations, which allow you to quickly connect with police in the event that an emergency happens.

Who is Targeted?

Open spaces have their own benefits—it promotes collaboration and a sense of community—but it also poses a security threat. Opportunists see these spaces as offering an opportunity for crime, where you can catch someone off guard when they’re on their phone or not paying attention. As a result, it’s important that someone who may be the victim of a mugging or attack to be able to receive help quickly and efficiently. These people may be blinded by panic or not have access to their cellphones, which is why emergency call stations are designed to draw their attention and help them get the help they need. Emergency call stations are noticeable thanks to their bright, strobing lights, which goes a long way in helping victims find it but also dissuades potential criminals from acting in the first place.  

What Are the Benefits?

In any zone where constant on-site surveillance isn’t practical, emergency call stations can boost the sense of security and help establish safety all around. When a user takes advantage of an emergency call station, they are able to immediately connect with police and inform them of the situation, allowing first responders to get on-site immediately. Thanks to their design, they also add some extra light to darker areas and act as a beacon of general security around the campus.
