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

  • Reporting a tip
  • Requesting a friend walk
  • Accessing emergency plans for such incidents 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 has become 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.

STEP 1 - Download the App

Download ETSU Safe App, if you have not done so already. You can find it in the App store or Google Play.

STEP 2 - Text to Subscribe

Text ETSU to 237233 to receive emergency text alerts.

To get the emergency text messages you must send a text message to the number above to enroll. If you only have the ETSU Safe App, you can receive push notifications when an emergency message is sent if you allow them in your phone settings. Email updates are sent to all student, faculty, and staff accounts and notifications are sent to all campus desktops.   

Note:  Standard message and data rates may apply

You may text the word STOP to cancel at any time
