Farmville Communications Center

Emergency Call Monitoring and Answering

The Farmville Communications Center monitors and answers all 911 calls that originate from the Longwood University campus telephone system, and all 911 calls that originate outside of Longwood University's telephone system.


Blue Emergency Phones and residential hall courtesy phones are strategically located throughout the University properties and are a direct link to the Farmville Communications Center.

When the emergency phone's red button is pushed the Farmville Communications Center dispatcher can identify the location where the call originated and dispatch a Longwood University Police Officer, even if the caller is unable to verbally communicate.
