Emergency Phone Program

Emergency Phone Program (EPP)

EPP includes emergency blue light towers, emergency blue light wall-mount stations and elevator phones.

Blue light devices are equipped with speaker phones and topped with strobe lights. Over 400 blue lights are strategically placed throughout FSU’s campus.

All emergency telephones ring directly to the FSU Police Department during an emergency. Should you ever feel threatened, see anything suspicious or require police assistance in anyway, push the emergency button located under the speaker of the emergency phone device to be connected with the FSU Police Department’s dispatch center.

The installation, maintenance and repair of EPP equipment is managed and facilitated by Facilities, Operations & Maintenance. The FSUPD is involved in decisions made concerning placement and/or moving of emergency telephone equipment.


1. Look for a blue light.

         The blue light identifies the location of the emergency phone.

2. Press the Emergency Phone button (no dialing necessary)

          A strobe light will flash and you will be connected to the University Police Department.

***Make a mental note of blue light locations as you walk the campus. In the event you should need to use one you should be aware of their locations.***

How to Report a Problem

To report a problem with a blue light device contact the Facilities Customer Service Center by phone at 850-644-2424. Make sure to note the blue light number located at the top of the blue light device.
