New Safety App - East Tennessee State University
New Safety App - East Tennessee State University

The university’s new safety app, called ETSU Safe App, is now available for download for Apple and Android device.  This new feature offers many new services, including information on:

  • Reporting a tip
  • Requesting a friend walk
  • Accessing emergency plans for incidents such as a tornado, natural disasters, active shooters, etc.
  • Learning about other safety resources.

In addition, with the ETSU Safe App, a person’s location will be made available when an emergency call is made.   The ETSU Safe App will replace Rave, or GoldAlert, at the end of the semester when this app becomes the primary notification platform. There are two important steps each student, faculty and staff member should take immediately in order to prevent any lapse in receiving this important information.

  1. Download ETSU Safe App if you have not done so already.  You can find it in the App store.
  2. You must also send text ETSU to 237233 to sign up to receive emergency text alerts.
If you only have the ETSU Safe App, you will receive push notifications when an emergency message is sent, along with the email updates and the Alertus desktop notifications.  However, to get the emergency text messages you must send a text message to the above number to enroll.  If you have any questions about the ETSU Safe App, contact Andrew Worley at .
