Fanshawe provides comprehensive safety app for students

September 23, 2014

Fanshawe College is offering students a new app designed to ensure their safety. The app, called Stay Safe Fanshawe, has a wide variety of features including a real-time security feed, urgent alerts, integration with safety programs like Safe Walk, information about special programs for women, bus routes and schedules, and a function that allows students to send an “I’m OK” message to a pre-programmed number in case of an emergency on campus. The app also includes a safety toolkit that turns a student’s smartphone into a flashlight or a personal alarm. “Safety at your fingertips is what it is. It’s everything we can do to keep you safe while you’re on campus, and help you to succeed as a student,” said Brent Arseneault, Special Constable for Community and Crime Prevention Programs. Metro
