Security Services has a 911 monitoring system in place on campus. All calls placed to 911 from a local phone on campus sends a signal through to the department so that we can identify the location of the call and respond to the emergency immediately.
Security Services has several alarm monitoring systems in place. The Security Services Office receives notifications of fire alarms, elevator telephone box calls, and panic button signals immediately once they are set off. Once one of these alarms is received, emergency procedures will be implemented.
Localized alarm systems are in place in designated areas on campus and are responded to by staff on location. Security Services may be called in to support alarm response where necessary.
StFX University has a number of emergency telephones located throughout campus buildings and residences. Security can be reached by dialing #4444 from any residence telephone. Residence Assistants/staff are on call from 8:00 PM to 8:00 AM in all student residence buildings (excluding West Street Apartments); and contact numbers are posted throughout the specific building.
StFX also has two (2) emergency poles located across campus. The boxes are located at Bloomfield/MacIsaac pathway (P5 on the parking map) and in the Chapel Parking/MacKinnon Hall (P14 on the parking map). Call boxes are for emergency use only.
