Notify people you trust to check in on you if you are alone or in an unfamiliar place. With the Safety Timer, your status & location are available to those you trust. Set it up when you are heading somewhere unfamiliar, meeting with someone you don’t know, or any other time you would like someone to check on you. Your Guardians will be notified if your timer expires.
Invite family, friends, or others you trust to be your Guardian and communicate with them within the app as needed. Just like you can invite someone to check in with you, you can return the favor. When one of your Guardians sets up their own Safety Timer, you will be able to see their time, location, status, and also call or text them right away if their Safety Timer expires.
Call FSW Public Safety directly for help if you are in trouble and send text tips – including photos – if you see something suspicious.
Florida SouthWestern State College joins over 1,000 campuses nationwide to use the Guardian mobile safety app powered by Rave Mobile Safety.

As a student or employee of FSW State College you will receive Emergency Notifications in the event an incident occurs on campus or some natural or man-made event causes the college to take emergency action or to close or suspend classes. You will be able to receive voice or text messages to your home or cell phone and through your FSW email. The contact information used for this system is generated by information you provided to the college.
We recommend everyone take a moment to review and update your PERSONAL EMERGENCY CONTACT INFORMATION.
Please note: All FSW telephones, including office and classroom telephones are automatically entered to receive messages so there is no need to enter those telephone numbers in your registration.
Alertus provides the FSW community with emergency notifications in cases of severe weather or other emergencies on campus. Whenever FSW Public Safety issues an emergency alert, all faculty and staff desktop workstations, computer labs, instructors stations, and student workstations will display a full-screen pop-up message. These pop-up alerts are in addition to those you may receive on your mobile devices and are not meant to replace them. View the handout for this program.
