How does the Guardian app work?

First, download and set up an account. The Rave Guardian App can be downloaded in the Apple or Google Play stores by searching for “Rave Guardian”.

To start using the app add your name, campus address, medical notes and other pertinent information for campus safety in case of emergency.

Invite family, friends, or others to be apart of your “Guardian network” You can communicate with those in your network within the app as needed.

Now if for any reason you feel unsafe, you can set a Safety Timer with your Guardians.

For example, imagine a female student is walking across campus alone at night. The walk from the library to her car usually takes about 10 minutes. In the app, she can set up a 10-minute safety timer with her personal Guardian contacts. If she does not deactivate the safety timer after 10 minutes, her Guardians will be immediately be notified. Guardians will also have access to important details such as her phone’s location on a map and contact information.

The app also allows for easy emergency communication. In an emergency situation, one button in the app directly connects the user to campus safety officials or 9-1-1.
