Seminole State's new personal safety app featured on WKMG-TV

WKMG-TV featured LifeLine, Seminole State's new personal safety app, as part of a segment on Wednesday, Oct. 14. You can view the segment here.

Seminole State College of Florida’s new personal safety mobile app was highlighted on WKMG-TV as part of its “Getting Results” series on Wednesday, Oct. 14.

In September, Seminole State introduced the LifeLine Response Enterprise personal safety mobile app free of charge for students, faculty and staff. The app runs on iPhones and Android devices and can be used 24/7 on and off-campus.

"Unlike the blue lights, which are stationary, this is something you have with you," Maxine Oliver, Seminole State director of Safety and Security noted in the report. "So if you're walking around campus or driving in your car this is something you don't have to look for that device.

In the event of a 911 emergency, LifeLine Response alerts emergency responders with the user’s location and identifying details. The user’s personal contacts also receive text and email alerts and instructions to access further details.

LifeLine Response also allows Seminole State to send email alerts and push notifications about potentially dangerous situations on campus, supplementing emergency communications that are already in place. For non-911 emergencies, students, faculty and staff are urged to continue to call the Office of Safety and Security at 407.708.2178.

In recent years, hundreds of colleges and universities have introduced similar apps in an effort to help students handle dangerous or troubling circumstances. Seminole State is the first college in Florida to offer LifeLine Response Enterprise.

Students can download the app through the Google Play Store or Apple App Store and then register using their Seminole State email addresses. For more information, visit seminolestate.edu/lifeline.
