SafeZone is a safety app which Canterbury Christ Church University is making available to all its students and staff at all its campuses.
The app allows you to alert University Security if you ever need urgent assistance, first aid or if you have an emergency while on campus via your mobile phone.
The system is privacy protected, so will never share your location unless you summon assistance or if you use the check-in function. This also means the app will not drain your mobile phone battery.
SafeZone is simple-to-use and free to download
Once you have downloaded the SafeZone app you need to sign up using your University email.
SafeZone has 3 main buttons that can be used to request assistance from Security
- First Aid
If a button is pressed in error, the alert can be cancelled by tapping the button again, whilst the timer is winding down.
SafeZone uses high-speed push messaging to allow Security to send you important notifications in the case of an emergency or critical incident on campus.
The Check In function allows you to let Security know where you are if you are working alone or outside of normal working hours.
SafeZone does not track your location. You only become visible on the system once you have raised an alert or checked in. Read about SafeZone's privacy provisions.
