This app could save your life

A Toronto based company has just released an iOS app that could be invaluable in case of an emergence and could even save your life.

Many emergency situations don’t always require an immediate call to these instances your circle of friends and family or friends could be more helpful if you had an easy way to notify them. That’s where Guardly comes in.

Your safety network can be notified with one tap on the screen..they can include family, friends, 911 or in the case of students campus security. Your responders can reply to you..initiate a conference call, call 911 all the while seeing your location on a map. This video demonstration shows how it works.

Guardly is a  free download from the Apple App Store but the premiun service is $9.95 a month or $99.95 per year. I highly recommend the premium service. There is a free version but it only sends a generic alert and has none of the interactive features.

    Hi Bob,

    Terrific post about a critical issue. Personal emergency management is too often on the back burner and it’s vital for people to take control of their surrounding environment to keep themselves and their families safe, especially during the first 72 hours of a disaster. Keep posting these public safety tips.
