Mac launches new safety app

McMaster Security Services has launched a new mobile app that provides both important safety alerts and access to campus safety resources.

Available for free on the Apple App Store and on Google Play, the McMaster SafetyApp features:

  • Safety alerts, including campus closures and emergency instructions
  • A list of contact information for emergency and non-emergency security concerns
  • Multiple ways to report a concern directly to the McMaster security department
  • A “Friend Walk” option that allows someone to watch your travel route home, which enhances the existing Student Walk Home Attendant Team
  • A map that shows where crimes have happened on and close to campus
  • Support resources and emergency plans

Learn more about the new app.
