Campus Security (Blue Light and Orange Alert)
Orange Alert: Non- Syracuse University students and employees will not be alerted in the event of a campus emergency.
A representative from the Sponsoring Department is responsible for alerting Campus Visitors who are not in the campus People Soft System, of any campus emergency which has been reported through Orange Alert. It is recommended that Sponsoring Department obtain cell phone information to text or call non-registered visitors in the event of an emergency.
“Blue-Light” Security Boxes: Description: Emergency call stations are readily identified by a blue light which is operational 24-hours per day directly above the call station. By pushing a large red button on the call box, a direct signal is sent to the Communications Center at the Security Department. Audible tones are heard at the blue light station to convey to the caller that an alert has been sent out.  Locations (click here)
