UIS Emergency Notification System

The UIS Emergency Notification System is used to quickly deliver critical information to the UIS campus community. Anytime there is an immediate or impending threat to the UIS Campus, the UIS Police will send out an alert using our Emergency Notification System in order to keep the community well informed and as safe as possible. The system in place utilizes multiple emergency notification services in order to be as efficient as possible.  These services can deliver information in the form of text messages, emails, social media accounts, digital signage on campus, and informational banners on the UIS webpage.  The system will only be used for emergency communications.  For more information on the UIS Emergency Notification System, please go to Features of UIS-Alert Emergency Notification System.


RaveAlert is an emergency notification service. The system is able to send emergency messages quickly and can distribute these messages in different 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 Police Telecommunicator. This service allows anyone to text the Campus Police to expedite a law-enforcement response. EyeWitness offers tipsters anonymity, allowing students to discreetly provide timely, critical information without letting those in his/her vicinity in on the conversation.
