Emergency Telephone System

Emergency telephone call boxes are located at almost every street intersection and other strategic locations on the West Lafayette campus. The Emergency Telephone System (ETS) boxes are either painted yellow and marked "Emergency," or they are black with a light on the front that illuminates the phone. Both styles have a blue light on top of the box for easy identification.

To use the ETS in case of emergency, push the button. The blue light on the box will begin to strobe to provide greater visibility. Within seconds, Purdue Police will answer your call to gather information. Please speak clearly and slowly into the box.
