FSU Guardian is a free and optional personal safety service that is available to anyone with a valid FSU ID. Students must be currently enrolled and have started classes to be able to register for the service.
How It Works
FSU Guardian allows you to rapidly provide information about yourself to the FSUPD during an emergency. By building a personal profile, information about you can be immediately accessed by FSUPD dispatchers should you call from a registered mobile phone. FSU Guardian can also provide police with GPS coordinates from your phone (if available), which can decrease response time and allow first responders to locate you should you not be able to give them your location.
Turn your phone into a personal safety device
Download the FREE Rave Guardian safety app to check in with family, friends, campus safety, or others you trust to help you stay safe both on and off campus.
With this app you can:
- Set a Safety Timer – Notify people you trust to check in on you if you are alone or in an unfamiliar place.
- Manage & Message Your Guardians – Invite family, friends, or others to be your Guardian, and communicate with them within the app as needed.
- Easy Emergency Communication – Call safety officials directly for help if you are in trouble and send text tips – including photos – if you see something suspicious.
Set up a Safety Timer
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 in with you.
Your Guardians will be notified if your timer expires. Remember to deactivate it when you are safe.
Connect with your Guardians
Your Guardians look out for you – and you look out for them. Add and message Guardians just like you do with your Contacts. You can easily communicate directly or via group messaging with those you trust – including the ability to send photos.
If one of your Guardians' Safety Timer has run out, you will be notified by the app, and you will be able to easily check in with that person to see if they are OK. You will also be able to see the location of their phone on a map.
Emergency and Tip Communication
Call 9-1-1 – If you are in trouble on campus, you can easily call your campus safety organization. You can also send a text tip – including photos – where available.
The Safety Strip – This tool ensures that the app’s functions are always readily available. Just tap or pull up the Shield icon when you need it.
