Except for the phone outside of the Dive Lockers, all of the phones at Hopkins require a "9" be dialed before any outside line can be called. Next to or on every phone at Hopkins is a card detailing what to do in an emergency and what steps to take if you need to call 9-911. In addition, the home phone numbers for both Judy Thompson and Chris Patton are listed. If it is an emergency, do not hesitate to call, even at odd hours.

At Stanford: does not apply down here, but as people here do go up to campus regularly, good idea to be aware of it.
