Tips to help you stay safe

As the Fall Term gets under way, Seminole State's Safety and Security Department would like to offer the following tips to help stay safe:

  • Remain alert to your surroundings at all times and report suspicious activity to campus security.
  • If you suspect someone on campus is a threat to others, call security immediately. Do not approach the person yourself.
  • Lock your car doors, and remove valuables from sight.
  • Do not leave your property unattended.
  • At night, stay in areas that are well lighted.
  • Call security for an escort to or from your car if you feel uncomfortable walking alone at night.
  • Carefully guard all college PINS and passwords; your credit card; bank account; and ATM PIN.
  • If the offer of an “opportunity” appears too good to be true, it probably is. Follow common business practices.

You should call 911 if you become aware of an emergency on a Seminole State College campus. If you’re calling from off-campus phones, cell phones or pay phones on campus, you should also contact your campus security office through the number below to report any on-campus, life-threatening emergency.

If you become aware of a non-life-threatening emergency, you should call Safety and Security Office on your campus:

  • Altamonte Springs: 407.404.6100
  • Heathrow: 407.708.4410
  • Oviedo: 407.971.5020
  • Sanford/Lake Mary: 407.708.2178

Additional resources:

  • Text messaging from Seminole State: Sign up and receive notification in the event of an emergency. Seminole State offers the service through alertseminole.org.
  • Seminole State Alert: The go-to source for College emergency information online. Go to Seminole State Alert for more details.
  • Emergency Hotline: Call 407.708.2290 to receive the latest information about campuswide class cancellations or closings.
