Emergency app helps campus community stay safe

Download UC Emergency from your app store today
September 2, 2015

In the spring, the University of Calgary launched UC Emergency, the university’s new emergency app. The UC Emergency app delivers alerts and updates directly to your smartphone that can save lives and prevent injury.

The app is one part of the university’s emergency management plan and a big part of creating a safe and healthy living and learning environment for everyone on campus.

“So far, more than 3,000 students, faculty and staff have downloaded and activated UC Emergency,” says Bob Maber, manager of emergency management. “While this is a good start, we want to encourage all students, faculty and staff to download this important tool.”

UC Emergency is specifically designed for University of Calgary students, faculty, and staff. They are the groups who would be directly affected by an emergency on campus. In the event of an emergency on campus, the university will also post regular updates on Twitter and on the emergency management website, which are available to the public.

Download the app from your smartphone at one of the links below:

Once downloaded from your app store, simply log in using your University of Calgary IT account credentials. Be sure to enable push notifications to allow the university to send you emergency alerts.

For more information on the app including a list of FAQs and our privacy statement, visit the UC Emergency app website.
