There are more than 20 panic buttons on campus. They are located in some women’s washrooms, for example, in the University Centre or in Roger Guindon Hall.
How do they work?
Examine the photo. It will help you to identify the panic buttons. Just push the button if you find yourself in a situation where you feel threatened, find a suspicious person in the washrooms, or witness an emergency. An alarm will sound, and at the same time, Protection Services will be alerted. Often the noise emitted by the panic button will be enough to cause the suspicious person to flee. An officer will be dispatched to the location immediately.
