Sign up for Alerts

Several emergency notification systems are available to alert the Johns Hopkins community of any situation, natural or man-made, that might pose an imminent threat to safety.

RAVE Emergency Alert Text Message System

The RAVE Emergency Text Message System immediately broadcasts emergency information to subscribers. The system is available only to Johns Hopkins students, faculty, and staff. If there is a significant incident that presents imminent danger, a short text message will be sent to the cellphone of each subscriber.

LiveSafe App

As another security tool to keep our campuses safe, we are offering a free mobile app, powered by LiveSafe, which with the press of a button can provide real-time, two-way communication 24/7 between our Department of Corporate Security and members of the Johns Hopkins community when they are on campus.

To use the app:

  • Register and fill out your profile.
  • Select your organization as Johns Hopkins, then select your campus location and affiliation.

With this app, you can:

  • Report a safety concern or suspicious activity, or request assistance from our Corporate Security by phone or text message. Officers will monitor the calls and messages, and can conduct a two-way chat. You can upload an image, video or audio file.  
  • Access resources, such as a security walking escort, campus maps, and corporate security‚Äôs emergency phone numbers and procedures.
  • Use GPS in the virtual buddy system to help make sure you, your friends and colleagues safely reach a destination.

As always, if there is an emergency, you should immediately dial 911.
