The Texas A&M University Central Texas’ TAMUCT eduSafe mobile app provides rapid access to all emergency procedures normally located in bulky flipcharts without requiring a data connection. By incorporating relevant safety and security information into the app, TAMUCT eduSafe ensures that personnel in all areas of any TAMUCT facility can access their campus specific safety procedures. This expanded access will help users handle many of the situations in which they might find themselves regardless of a data connection. The main features of TAMUCT eduSafe are:
o Access to emergency procedures regardless of Wi-Fi or data connection
o Reporting of any safety or security concerns
o Maps to our campuses and parking lots
o “Request Security Escort” feature to call security to walk you to your car or class should you feel unsafe
o Easier access to the TAMUCT’s annual security reports
Essentially, we view this app as an “in-hand” liaison between safety and security and the TAMUCT community.
