New Emergency Notification System - Rave Mobile Safety
RaveAlert is a new emergency notification service and replaces the MyStateUSA Emergency Notification System. The new system will be able to send emergency messages more quickly than the previous system and will distribute these messages in more formats, including Facebook and Twitter.
Guardian allows any user with a Web-enabled cellphone to activate a "panic button" that will immediately alert police to a problem and open communications between the user and the Campus Police. Additionally, Guardian has a precautionary timer that acts as a digital alternative to a campus walking escort. A user will be able to set the estimated time needed to walk to a destination. If that time expires and the user has not canceled the timer, the Campus Police will call to ensure that the user is safe.
EyeWitness allows anyone who witnesses a crime to initiate a text message conversation with a Public Safety officer. This service allows anyone to text the Campus Police to expedite a law-enforcement response. EyeWitness offer tipsters anonymity, allowing students to discretely provide timely, critical information without letting those in his/her vicinity in on the conversation.
Who May Use This Service
Students, faculty, and staff of the University of Illinois at Springfield can register to receive messages from RaveAlert.
