Students can additionally redo the application to send alerts to their folks, gatekeepers or companions if there arises an occurrence of a crisis.

Western Nebraska Community College is truly living up to its mission by being committed to enriching lives and invigorating communities”, stated Anjli Jain, Chairman of the Campus Consortium. “The app can avert accidents and definitely prove to be an asset for student security.”
