RebelSAFE Alert

RebelSAFE Alert is the emergency notification system used for incidents that present an imminent threat to life, health or safety to UNLV students, employees, faculty, and community members.  RebelSAFE Alert messages provide emergency information and instructions to protect yourself during an emergency.  In the event of an emergency, RebelSAFE Alert will send emails, text messages, post to UNLV Police Services Facebook and Twitter, push notifications to the RebelSAFE Mobile App, and provide audio and visual warnings to computer desktops, digital advertising kiosks, RebelSAFE Emergency Phones, and UNLV websites.

RebelSAFE Emergency Phones

RebelSAFE Emergency Phones are for students, employees, faculty, and community members of UNLV to request help, report a crime in progress, report suspicious activities, request an escort, or for any other emergency. The new state of the art 12-foot tall RebelSAFE Emergency Phones are equipped with a 4000k LED area light, a 360-degree surveillance camera, and are strategically located throughout campus to broadcast RebelSAFE Alerts via public address speaker in the event of an emergency.

Current emergency phone locations can be viewed online for both the Maryland Parkway campus and for the Shadow Lane campus.

UNLV Police Services previously completed an initial upgrade of 19 new RebelSAFE emergency phones throughout campus as part of a $250,000 grant from CSUN student government. In fall 2018, an additional 9 emergency phones were installed, with more planned in upcoming semesters.
