Calling 911 at BCIT
The BCIT – 911 system is a PC based application that provides your telephone number and location to E-Comm when you dial 911 from a BCIT telephone. This allows E-Comm to telephone you back, if required, and allows them to direct emergency response personnel to your exact location.
E-Comm is the emergency communications center for south western BC.
Alerts to security
The BCIT – 911 system will alert BCIT Security whenever a 911 call is made from a BCIT telephone. The system will display the originating telephone number, associated staff name and location of the telephone from which the 911 call was made. In this way, BCIT Security will be able to provide rapid response to the emergency, even before emergency services personnel arrive on the scene.
