Blue Light Phones

Emergency Blue Light Phones have been strategically placed throughout Missouri Baptist University’s 65-acre campus in an effort to further provide assistance, and protective and safety services to the MBU campus community. The phones, which are attached to elevated and highly visible poles, are equipped with speakerphones and strobe lights. Phones are to be used by students experiencing car problems, want to report a suspicious incident or a medical emergency, or for any other kind of assistance or information.

These units compliment the courtesy phones provided at the entrances of each MBU campus facility. When used, the telephones are immediately connected directly to the Department of Public Safety.

How to use a Blue Light Phone:

  1. Push button for help
  2. When call is received
  3. Push and hold to talk
  4. Release to listen
