2. Emergency Contacts
Instantly call security, 911, or JSO for off campus emergencies while on any campus.

3. Mobile Bluelight
This feature calls campus security for you as well as sends them your location through the GPS on your phone.

4. Friend Walk
This feature allows you to connect with one of your contacts and to them your location in real time. They can watch as you travel to your destination and call for help if needed.  There is an emergency button that allows you to notify your friend if you are in danger and connects you with the emergency number.

5. Virtual Walkhome
This is similar to friend walk however, instead of one of your contacts being notified, you can be monitored directly by security while you are on campus.  To use, simply select your location and wait for confirmation that you are being monitored. This option also includes an easily accessible emergency button.

6. Report a Tip
If you encounter a situation that you think should be brought to the attention of campus security this feature provides several ways to do that.  You can email a report, email a photo or video, or phone in a tip.

7.  Personal Safety Toolbox

8. Campus Maps
This is a useful feature even when you aren’t in an emergency situation. The detailed maps are available for each campus and are interactive.

9.  Emergency Plans
It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with these plans before an emergency situation happens.  It contains detailed instructions on the correct procedure and safest behavior in several different situations, including evacuations and severe weather conditions.  It also connects you with the College emergency hotline.
