We are excited to announce that Clayton State University will begin migrating to the Rave Mobile Safety emergency communication system next week. This system is already in use nationwide by many other educational institutions. It consists primarily of two components- Rave Alert and Rave Guardian. Rave Alert is a mass communication system that will allow for emergency messages to be disseminated through various modes of communication (e.g. email, text messages, websites, twitter, etc.) instantly with only one message entry. Rave Guardian is a personal safety component and smart phone application, that can be used as a personal tracking tool if a user has safety concerns (e.g. walking to or from a class late at night), making panic calls, and to submit eyewitness tips of possible criminal activity or other safety concerns. Users (students, faculty and staff) will be encouraged to register and establish personal profiles to facilitate law enforcement response in critical situations. In preparation for Rave’s implementation, you can review more details about the Rave Mobile Safety functions at their website- ravemobilesafety.com.
Stay tuned for more information and the activation date.
