The EVMS Police and Public Safety offers enhanced services to EVMS emergency notification system users. We have partnered with Rave Mobile Safety to provide the EVMS Rave Alert notification system, which delivers messages to your mobile phone and email address in the event of an emergency.

EVMS Rave Alert subscribers are able to manage emergency services in one online location and choose features that include the EVMS Rave Guardian service, which transforms a mobile phone into a personal alarm beacon that allows EVMS Police to respond more quickly when help is needed. EVMS employees, staff, students and residents are automatically enrolled in the system to receive EVMS email alerts. When they provide a mobile phone number they are also automatically enrolled in the mobile text alerts system as well.

We encourage each member EVMS community to log in to the EVMS Rave Alert website to confirm contact information.
