Emergency Notification System

Emergency Notification System icon


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.

Who May Use This Service

Students, faculty, and staff of the University of Illinois Springfield can register to receive messages from RaveAlert.
