Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) maintains several methods to communicate immediate emergency information throughout the campus. These systems may be used when campus authorities and/or local emergency responders confirm a significant emergency exists and determine that emergency notification is warranted. These systems include the following:
Eagle Guardian is a smartphone app that anyone can download for use at ERAU. Campus Safety & Security incorporates the latest technology in campus safety for students, employees and visitors. Students, employees and visitors with smartphones are able to download Eagle Guardian by searching for Rave Guardian for download in iTunes or the Google Play Store. Eagle Guardian gives users a direct line to call 911 or Campus Safety & Security’s Emergency Line, the opportunity to chat with Campus Safety & Security anonymously about non-emergency situations, the ability to receive alerts based on your location, access to useful URLs and phone numbers, and a Virtual Safety Timer that allows users to set a timer that will alert friends and family or the Campus Safety & Security Department when it expires. This feature is useful for users who are walking on campus or driving to the Flight Line. Users at the Prescott Campus and Flight Line will receive push notifications through the app in the event of an emergency.
RAVE is an emergency notification system that allows subscribers to receive emergency information and instructions via text and voice messages to their phones. To participate, students and employees must opt-in to the system by clicking on the RAVE icon on the ERNIE homepage and providing their phone number. The RAVE system and siren are tested at least once each semester with advance notification to the campus through email.
Campus Public Address
Campus Public Address are outdoor loudspeakers with voice capability that can broadcast RAVE alerts and instructions to the campus. Such alerts may include severe weather, serious criminal threats or the need to shelter within a building due to a dangerous chemical release.
The Campus Safety & Security Department uses its Facebook, Instagram and YouTube accounts to disseminate emergency information (@ERAUPrescottCampusSafety) and follow-up emergency information.
Email may be used for follow-up emergency information since all students and employees are issued email addresses.
Patrol Car Public Address Systems
Patrol Car Public Address Systems can provide immediate alert and instructional information to limited areas since Campus Safety & Security Department patrol vehicles are equipped with external loudspeakers.
ERNIE Announcements may be used to communicate subsequent and general information.
