Holland College now has a free downloadable safety app for students, staff and parents. The app integrates the college's emergency, closure, and security systems, providing users with up-to-the-minute notifications in the event of an emergency or a closure at a Holland College location.
The app also contains a Friend Walk feature. Users can send their location to a friend, who can digitally watch them walk to their destination and even trigger a call to emergency services if necessary.
President Dr. Sandy MacDonald said the app provides a cohesive platform for the college’s many safety and security strategies.
“HC Safe sends users important alerts and provides instant access to campus safety resources, emergency procedures as well as support services. I encourage students, their parents, and staff to download the free app and familiarize themselves with its many features,” he said.
The HC Safe app is available in the Apple App Store and Google Play.
