Emergency Phones = Direct Access to Security
Sheridan has 147 emergency phones, which have been installed for safety inside buildings and on the grounds at Trafalgar, Davis and Hazel McCallion campuses. Emergency phones provide direct access to Campus Security, and a security guard is dispatched to the phone’s location in the event of an emergency or immediately upon request.
All Sheridan community members are encouraged to use an emergency phone to immediately reach Security when:
- You’re being harassed or feel threatened
- You’re witness to or involved in an accident or hazardous situation
- You’re witnessing worrisome or suspicious activity in progress
- You’re ill or require medical attention
- You require a SafeWalk escort
- You need assistance or directions
Emergency Phone Locations
At Trafalgar, Davis and Hazel McCallion campuses, inside emergency phones are in yellow boxes, mounted to walls in corridors. Additionally, all elevators are equipped with an emergency phone or button, located near the panel.
Outside emergency phones are tall, cylinder-shaped blue towers located along pathways and near parking lots.

How to use an Emergency Phone
Sheridan has two types of emergency phones:
- Some phones have a large, red, ‘PUSH FOR HELP’ button, which directly dials Security Dispatch once activated
- Other phones have a numerical key pad and black button in addition to the red ‘PUSH FOR HELP’ button. It is recommended that in all circumstances, the ‘PUSH FOR HELP’ button is used instead of the key pad. It is the fastest and easiest way to reach Security.
