Until further notice, the University Police Department is unable to receive fire alarm activations in its dispatch center for a majority of fire alarms on the Hattiesburg campus. The building fire alarms are in working order and will activate in the event of a detection, but will not notify UPD.
If any activation is detected in a building, immediately notify UPD at 601.266.4986 or dial 911 from any campus phone. Please be advised that if you dial 911 from your cell phone, it will not go directly to UPD dispatch.
Fire Safety is working to identify the problem and working with contractors to make the needed repairs to the system. UPD will keep the campus community updated. This problem is limited to the Hattiesburg campus only.
