Emergency preparedness: Rave Guardian app offers free safety features

LCC invests in an app designed to help keep you safe, on campus and off. Rave Guardian can be found in the iTunes store and Google Play. Download it for all these cool features:

  • Personal safety timer: Never walk alone! This “virtual escort” allows you to set a fixed time for your departure and arrival – say, when walking to your car in the dark. Your pre-selected “guardian,” often a friend or family member, will receive a notification when you arrive safely, or when you don’t arrive at the expected time.
  • LCC Police Department direct chat: Text with LCC’s Police Department, allowing you to report suspicious activity or get help discreetly.
  • LCC Police Department direct call: Call LCC’s Police Department with the push of a button.
  • LCC Alert Notification direct to app: Get push alerts when LCC sends an emergency alert.
  • Local 911 direct call: Call 911 from any location.
  • Help/tip lines: A directory of important phone numbers, like to LCC Facilities, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline and the Michigan Poison Control.
  • LCC web resource link: Connect with important LCC safety resources, like the Emergency Management Department.
