Safety Information

Ben and Maytee Fisch College of Pharmacy

UT Tyler Emergency Communications: This UT Tyler emergency website will be updated with the most current information available, as well as details and instructions.

RAVE Patriot Guardian Application: Allows individuals to quickly contact university police in cases of an emergency by phone call or text, and you can use the app to dial 9-1-1 when you are off campus. This free app is available through your mobile app store – download the RAVE Guardian, which will then personalize to the UT Tyler and appear as Patriot Guardian. Allows you to 1) make an emergency call to police and 2) report a crime in progress or suspicious activity. Other features include:

  • Safety timer – set a timer from five minutes up to 24 hours so that if you have not reached your destination and deactivated the timer, university police will be alerted.
  • GPS location – using your profile information, university police will be able to reach you and make sure you are safe.
  • Guardians – you may designate friends, roommates or family to be your guardian during your safety timer session.
  • Emergency call button – allows direct and immediate contact to campus police, including GPS location and user profile information.
  • User profile – provides campus police with as much, or as little, information as you wish to submit, including current location, medical conditions, addresses and photo. This data isn't shared with police until activation occurs either by call, text or expired safety timer.
