According to Shanon Anderson, associate vice president for public safety and OSU’s chief of police, some of the affected services will include elevator emergency phones as well as the BlueLight emergency phones. 

Should an emergency occur during the outage, 9-1-1 should be called from a mobile device, Anderson said. The outage will also affect the Hatfield Marine Center.
