    Tower Watch — E.T. can’t phone home

    Out of Service

    How many of Laney’s 23 blue emergency phones are operational? Tower research reveals that six are functioning properly; one functions though inaudible; 11 are labeled “out of service”; and five are out of service though not labeled so.
    How far have we come in 10 years? The Tower ran a page one story on Dec. 8, 2005, under the headline “Alarming situation at Peralta,” which confirmed that out of 47 blue emergency phones throughout the district, only 11 were operational.
    Let’s hope it doesn’t take a tragedy to bring corrective action.

    About the Contributor
    In the fall of 2019, The Laney Tower rebranded as The Citizen and launched a new website. These stories were ported over from the old Laney Tower website, but byline metadata was lost in the port. However, many of these stories credit the authors in the text of the story. Some articles may also suffer from formatting issues. Future archival efforts may fix these issues.
