In case of an emergency during this maintenance, it is important to use a cell phone to contact police from campus by calling 911. Members of the campus community are reminded that 911 is always the appropriate number to call for an emergency on campus, and that in the event of a future interruption in “land line” phone service at UGA, cell phones should be used to contact police.
