OSU Public Safety announces the release of its new Public Safety app - Rave Guardian, which replaces the current DamSafe Bluelight app, which will be discontinued in September 2022.

The Rave Guardian app allows OSU students and staff to quickly access public safety services on and off-campus. App features include:

  • one-button emergency calls,
  • location-specific public safety contact information and services,
  • ability to receive OSU Alerts, and
  • ability to create a Virtual Escort from your contacts to accompany you as you walk on campus 
     

The Virtual Escort feature uses a timer and a selected person from your phone’s contact to keep informed as you travel. The contact cannot see your location until the timer expires and you don’t turn off the reminder notice. Then your last location will be sent with an urgent message to your contact to inform them that your trip is overdue and to contact you. App users can initially select the Corvallis, Bend, or Newport locations for location-specific information and contacts. If you change locations, the Settings option easily allows you to select your new location and all its information.

Download the app for your Apple or Android device. Look for the Rave Guardian app in the App Store and install today.
