MoBUll Message Alerts for USFSP Adjacent Organizations

USF has expanded the “MoBull Messenger” Emergency Notification System for USFSP to allow for authorized persons and organizations in proximity to our campus community to receive emergency notifications via text messages.

You are encouraged to subscribe to this system in order to receive the most current and continuously updated information regarding any potential dangerous or emergency situations impacting the USFSP campus area.

The following organizations are eligible to subscribe to receive these emergency notification messages: Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI/FWC), US Geological Survey (USGS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Florida Institute of Oceanography (FIO), Florida Humanities Council, USF Federal Credit Union, Barnes and Nobles, and the Poynter Media Institute.

How it works. Upon the report of a dangerous or emergency situation, USFSP officials will confirm the existence of the threat. These situations may include, but are not limited to: law enforcement issues; hazardous material release; utility failure; and hazardous weather near the USFSP campus.

As soon as USFSP officials have confirmed that a significant emergency or dangerous situation exists, USFSP officials will take into account the safety of the community; determine what information to release about the situation; and begin the notification process.

The MoBull Messenger delivers emergency notification messages to all subscribed members via cellular phone texts. The text message will appear as “USFSP Alert” and will describe the problem, location and action to take during an emergency or dangerous situation.

The MoBull Messenger is tested once per semester during daytime hours. You will have full control of your personal profile through the on-line subscription process.
