The blue emergency-phone kiosks scattered around the Burnaby campus may soon have a new role as public broadcast systems for emergency announcements.

Network services is awaiting new equipment to turn one of the kiosks, which is connected directly to campus security, into a reverse 911 system.

The pilot system will be implemented on the blue phone adjacent to the main bus loop so that bystanders can hear about bus cancellations or other emergency messages.

If the pilot is effective, it may be implemented at further blue phones.
