React Mobile Safety App


Seattle University is piloting a Safety App with React Mobile

You may be interested in adding the App to your smart phone as a tool for walking more safely. The App allows you to notify your friends or family within your phone contact list if you need assistance or if you would like them to "follow you" on your walk. This allows them to see that you arrived safe or if you need help. Currently, if you set up your account with your Seattle University email address, Seattle University Public Safety will automatically be added to your list of people who get a request for help. The App also works with a small "SideKick" blue tooth button you can push to alert that you need assistance. To check out more on the React Mobile App on their website at
