Security Control Centre (SCC)
by York University Security Services, the Security Control Centre
(SCC) is staffed 24 hours a day throughout the year to provide a
means of rapid communication between members of the York community
and emergency and other security services available on and off campus.
The SCC receives telephone calls from the community, monitors CCTV
security cameras and dispatches mobile and foot patrol security
officers. The SCC's specially-trained desk officers are equipped
to obtain the required help in the shortest possible time, arranging,
where necessary, to meet emergency vehicles (police, fire, ambulance)
at the main entrance to campus, and to escort them directly to the
scene of the emergency. To enable SCC to dispatch assistance in
an effective and timely manner, it is important that they be informed
in the first instance of all emergency situations on either campus.
To obtain help in an emergency arising at York or Glendon, call
33333 or 416-736-5333, or simply pick up the receiver of any Emergency
Blue Light Telephone or elevator emergency telephone. The latter
connect directly to SCC. No money is required when calling Security
at 416-736-5333 from any Campus pay phone.
occasion, a personal emergency may require a student to be contacted
quickly. Students are urged to provide those who may need to reach
them in an emergency with up-to-date information about their class
timetable, specifying day, times and locations.
