Emergency Call Boxes

Emergency Call Boxes have been strategically placed throughout the campus for the safety of the Wagner Community. The Emergency Call Boxes, when activated, automatically contact the Wagner College Public Safety Central Radio Dispatch, notifying the Public Safety Dispatcher the caller’s exact location.

Students and staff are encouraged to learn the location of emergency call boxes and to use them for all security and emergency communications.

Any problems regarding the condition and/or use of the Emergency Call Boxes should be forwarded to the Wagner College Public Safety Office for immediate attention. If an emergency should arise, individuals can use the Emergency Call Boxes or an in-house phone by dialing x9111, to contact the Wagner College Public Safety Central Dispatch.
