Our Services

  • Emergency Call Boxes
    Emergency call boxes have been strategically placed in parking lots and common areas at Ocala and Citrus campuses. These boxes are solar powered and run on the college’s radio network. Call box locations can be viewed on the college map as yellow circles with a telephone receiver.
  • Emergency Telephones
    Emergency telephones have been installed in buildings at Ocala and Citrus campuses and the Hampton Center. Telephones in the Learning Resources Center, Bryant Student Union, Ewers Century Center and University Center allow calls off campus. Telephones at other locations connect directly to the Public Safety Office.
  • Automated External Defibrillators, AEDs
    AEDs are available in the event an individual goes into cardiac distress and may be utilized until emergency personnel arrive on scene. Public Safety Officers and some college personnel have been trained in the use of the AEDs.
  • Evacuation Chairs
    Evacuation chairs are available to assist individuals who require evacuation from a multistory building. All multistory buildings have evacuation chairs located in a stairwell; the Ewers Century Center has two evacuation chairs.
  • Vehicle Assistance
    Public Safety can provide assistance to jump start a vehicle or open a vehicle if keys have been locked inside. Provide vehicle location and description when calling for assistance.
  • Lost and Found
