Awareness is an important part of preventing threats in Florida. FortifyFL allows students, parents and teachers to feel secure reporting possible crimes, threats or unsafe situations anonymously through an easy-to-use app.

Schools should be safe places where students, educators and visitors can experience and share the joy of learning without fear.

The tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School serves as a reminder that we must remain vigilant at all times. The FortifyFL app makes it simple for anyone to report anonymously school safety concerns, and I urge all Floridians, parents and students, to download the app today.

The FortifyFL app is available for download in the Apple App Store and Google Play. Tips can also be submitted online at
