Multiple blue lights across campus are not funcitonal, the Campus Safety director confirmed. “As new students arrive at KSC they are encouraged to add the Campus Safety phone number to their cell phones during orientation,” Chris Buckley, director of Campus Safety said in an email.
“As you know most students have cell phones with them at all times,” Buckley said. Buckley added, “The actual use of blue light phones for emergency responses has declined significantly over the past few years.”
Many of the blue light models across campus also do not have the replacement parts to complete repairs, “we are currently exploring options for virtual blue lights through applications on electronic devices,” Buckley said.
