SAFETY AND SECURITY NEWS: Four Emergency Call Boxes Installed on Campus

November 25, 2014

Safety and Security - Emergency Call Boxes

Four fully-functional emergency call boxes have been installed on the Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) Dominica Campus in a continuing effort to improve security, announced Director of Security and Emergency Management Dennis Gordon.

The tall, blue metal emergency call boxes have a blue light on the top which is clearly visible during the day and at night, and the word “EMERGENCY” in capital letters written vertically along the structure. The call boxes are located on the northeast side of Jenner Hall, near the Ross University Housing (RUH) pool, between the lower sea-side deck and the basketball court, and near the Small Learning Lab. There is a plan for additional emergency call boxes to be placed in strategic locations throughout the Picard community. 

The easy instructions for using the call boxes are displayed on each of the units. In the event of an emergency, locate the nearest call box and push the red button, to be connected to a Security Department dispatcher, who will receive automatic notification of your location. Then, state your emergency. Assistance will be dispatched.


Members of the community are advised to be aware of RUSM emergency numbers should the need arise:

  • Security (emergency): 767-235-9111
  • Security Office: 767-255-6234
  • Health Clinic: 767-255-6501

These numbers are printed on the back of the RUSM IDs for ease of reference, Gordon noted, and should be saved on people’s phones.
