FSCJ Safe Mobile App Downloads
FSCJ Safe is an essential tool to enhance your safety at Florida State College at Jacksonville. The app will send you important safety alerts and provide instant access to campus safety resources. Select the app for your device.
The free app, available to download on Apple and Android devices, offers real-time safety functions and features in one convenient location to help ensure the safety of those on campus at all times. To help users plan ahead and prepare before incidents occur, the comprehensive app provides important information on how to respond to emergencies such as active shooter situations, evacuations, severe weather and more.
Through the FSCJ Safe app, users can report information and receive emergency notices. In addition, the app offers campus maps, helpful resources and options to call 911 or report a tip to Campus Security if a user witnesses suspicious activity.
FSCJ Safe’s features include the Mobile BlueLight function, which allows on-campus users to send their location to and chat with Campus Security dispatch. The feature works similarly to the fixed positioned BlueLight boxes located throughout FSCJ’s campuses.
Using the Friend Walk tool, users can send their location to a friend or Campus Security, who can then watch the user walk to their destination via GPS. FSCJ Safe also provides a list of Campus Security contacts as well as phone numbers for JSO and the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office.
“We continue to strengthen any and all efforts to provide our faculty, staff and students with a safe and secure environment, knowing we cannot predict the unthinkable though believing the more prepared we are, the greater the prevention,” said FSCJ President Dr. Cynthia Bioteau.
All users are encouraged to submit feedback on ways to improve the FSCJ Safe app through the “About/Preferences” tab. Users can easily locate and download the app in Google Play or the App Store by searching “FSCJ Safe.”
