Emergency Communications

  1. Dialing “80” is the number to call from internal phones in case of emergency.
  2. Campus payphones also have FREE one touch emergency dialing to Security & Emergency Services.
  3. Ryerson’s campus is also equipped with security blue phones for emergency and non-emergency use.
    These three methods are direct lines to Security & Emergency Services’ 24/7 communications centre that are given priority over other non-emergency calls. These lines identify the location of the telephone from which the call originated. This will aid Security & Emergency Services in locating the caller more easily during emergency situations.
  4. Activating a blue “distress pull station” located in most hallways of buildings where classes are held.
  5. Activating the red “distress station” located in most accessibility stalls in washrooms.
