Let's walk through what you are seeing (or not seeing) and how to use each feature.
This is where you will get all your Rave Guardian messages. For example, if you sent in a tip and police have responded and closed the case, you may receive a message that the case has been closed.
You can name "Guardians" on your phone who you can enable for the safety timer. They look out for you and you look out for them. Add and text Guardians just like you do with your contacts. You need to have a Guardian for the Safety Timer feature to work. Please note: Public Safety / Campus Police are not Guardians and will not respond to expired safety timers.
To Add Guardians:
Now that you have set up your Guardians, you can set safety timers! This is a neat feature for at work or at home. Set a safety timer when you are heading somewhere unfamiliar, walking from work to your car, or any other time you would like someone to check on you! Please note: Public Safety / Campus Police are not Guardians and will not respond to expired safety timers.
To Set a Safety Timer:
Send a Tip:
This is a great feature that can be used on the main Kansas City Campus to report various types of tips from an accident to social media abuse! You can even send a picture! These tips go directly to the KUMC 24/7 dispatch and are confidential - but are not anonymous for anonymous reporting, submit an email through Ask the Chief. This feature also allows messaging to occur between dispatch and the tip reporter.
To Send a Tip:
Call KUMC Police:
If you are on the Main Kansas City Campus (including Westwood, Dialysis Center, CRC, and Fairway North), you will have the "Call KUMC Police" button.
Please note, if you are on other outlying campuses you will not have access to this button as KUMC Police does not respond to other locations. If you have an emergency situation, use the "Call 9-1-1" button, or dial 9-1-1 directly from your phone.
To quickly get a hold of the KUMC Police, simply press this button within the app (you will be asked to confirm). The call will go directly to the on campus 24/7 dispatch center.
Use this button to contact your local 9-1-1 no matter where you are. Just open the app, hit the button and confirm that you want to call 9-1-1. You can also just dial 9-1-1 from your dialer... we're all about options here.
Profile / My Account:
Use your profile to add any information you would want first responders to know about you in case o f an emergency. You can add members of your family, pets, medical conditions, allergies, or disabilities. You can edit your profile from the app (detailed below) or by going to your account at Smart911.
