Emergency Management

Safe Ospreys App

Safe Ospreys App with icons circled and Safety at your fingertipsThe University uses a mobile safety app to communicate messages and alerts to the campus community: Safe Ospreys. By downloading the app, users will have access to the UNF Alert Feed for emergency notifications and these six safety feature buttons:

  • Mobile BlueLight: Just like the blue emergency phones on campus, this button simultaneously sends your location and calls the dispatchers in the University Police Department.
  • Friend Walk: This allows individuals to send your location in real-time to a friend or parent, so they can monitor as you walk to your destination and trigger a call to emergency services if needed.
  • Report a Tip: Users can report a tip of unusual or criminal activity to UPD using one of three options—a Tip Report, the Silent Witness program or a call to UPD’s dispatch center.
  • Safety Toolbox: This button reveals a set of tools with directions—Flashlight, Share Map of your location and Notification History.
  • Emergency Plans: Even without internet access, users will be able to view and keep informed of the University’s emergency plans, such as procedures for bomb threats, campus disturbance, hazardous release, fire and facility evacuation.
  • Support Resources: This button offers links to the University’s Counseling Center and Women’s Center.
