Emergency Blue Lights are located in all the parking lots on campus and placed throughout the walkway areas. The purpose of the blue lights is to give you direct contact with the UWF police communications center. To operate the blue light open the box on the pole and press the red button on the inside and you will be in immediate contact with the dispatcher. Each time a blue light is activated an officer will be sent to investigate. If you do not have time to open the box and push the button, strike the side of the pole and this will activate the tamper alarm. The alarm will tell the dispatcher what blue light has been activated and where it is located and an officer will respond.
