We are pleased to present an easy-to-use phone app to help protect vulnerable people.
Providing immediate assistance in any circumstance that may put someone at risk for injury or harm (e.g. domestic violence, hitchhiking, work in the sex trade, mental illness, addictions,
homelessness, seniors, newcomers).
Our partners in this initiative are Aware360, Telelink and BC SafetyLink
How does it work?
The Aware360 App works on any smart phone.
It connects to BC SafetyLink, a professional response centre owned and operated by the Gitxsan First Nation, who provide clients the ability to check-in and receive emergency response
This service is supported by Telelink Emergency & Safety Response Center to ensure 24 / 7 / 365 support.
Clients can check-in at regular intervals or set hazard timers if they are about to enter a risky situation.
If they find themselves in trouble, they can send an emergency signal for immediate help.
The client’s location is only known after signing in to the app and social agencies can define the response plan to ensure the right balance between protection and privacy.
The Aware360 app is available to agency clients at no cost as part of the Safer Communities Initiative.
Technology to ignite your cause.
