Reminder: How to make a live page

As a reminder, in the event of a significant emergency all building phones can be used for a live page. To make a live page from any phone dial 4777. When it asks for a log-in enter 8009#. When they ask for a password enter 8009#. When you hear the tone the page is live. In the event of a lockdown situation you will say "This is ______________, the building is now in a lockdown." This will allow us to have a better idea of where there is an issue.
