University Adds Another Layer of Security

The geo fence established by KCUMB with Guardly.
KCUMB’s Safety and Emergency Management Department is preparing to add another layer of security for our students, faculty and staff, thanks to a new app.

Starting in mid-July, we will begin using the Guardly Mobile Safety App. The opt-in mobile phone application enables the University to extend the reach of our emergency blue-light phones on campus by putting a virtual emergency phone on personal smartphones carried by those within the KCUMB community.

In addition, the app will allow the Safety and Emergency Management Department to track changes in the location of emergencies as they happen, while simultaneously communicating with the victim throughout the incident. The app will notify KCUMB of emergencies within the geo fence it established with Guardly, pictured above.

The safety of our students, faculty, staff and visitors is a high priority for all of us at KCUMB.
