Code Blue Help Points® Bolster Security at Swarthmore College

Colleges and universities continue to embrace the safety and security benefits that come with Code Blue’s industry leading Help Points®.

The student newspaper at Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania recently reported that the school installed emergency blue light phone towers at some of the most heavily trafficked areas on campus as recommended by its Public Safety Advisory Committee, a team made up of students, faculty and staff. The additions were part of a broader program designed to strengthen the security resources available on campus.

“Those who responded consistently expressed support for blue light phones, among other safety initiatives,” said Director of Public Safety, Mike Hill. Data from the Spring 2014 Public Safety Survey, — which approximately 522 students, staff and faculty members took online after an email was sent to the whole community inviting participation — furthermore, verifies that safety call boxes are a priority for those who took the survey.

Swarthmore College bolstered their security system by including Code Blue’s powerful 360-degree, six-speaker, 400-watt public address system and Overhead Camera Mount for additional communication and integration features. The package provides a safer and more secure environment for the school’s 1,500 students and 200-plus faculty.
