Here's a list of the features on FSCJ's new easy-to-use safety app that everyone should have loaded on their mobile device.
1. FSCJ Twitter feed
An easy way to get to the FSCJ Official Twitter feed, which offers up-to-date information such as closures, emergencies, and event information.
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
This feature provides useful tools when in an emergency situation. They include a flashlight, a loud alarm, and another way to send your location to security to indicate you need help. This is also where you can find the emergency hotline for college employees.
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.
10. Helpful Resources
This feature provides basic College information such as academic schedules and catalog in an easy to navigate format.

Have you searched for an answer in the Knowledge Base?
One of the missions of Academic Technology is to ensure everyone at the College has access to assistance when they have a question related to technology. We've developed help.fscj.edu, which is the go-to place to submit a ticket for help, call or chat with a service desk representative. What if you want to fix a problem yourself, or are just looking for tips on how to use college systems or equipment? For self-service information, you can search a topic within the Knowledge Base.
The Knowledge Base is an always-evolving compendium of information about Information Technology systems and services, including Office 365, Blackboard, Peoplesoft, and Media Space. New articles are constantly being added, along with links to video tutorials, screen captures, and written step-by-step instructions. Everything is searchable by topic or category, as shown on the screen shot above. If you don't see an answer to a question you have, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll be happy to create a solution that can be added for others who may have the same concern.
