K-State to retire LiveSafe, replace with Rave Guardian

Submitted by K-State Police Department

Beginning July 6, the university will retire LiveSafe and partner with the Rave Guardian mobile app that fully integrates with the K-State Alerts system. The app will aid in emergency and safety communications. 

Much like LiveSafe, the free Guardian app allows K-Staters to send emergency or safety-related notices directly to K-State police.

Guardian app features include:

  • One-click emergency dial. 
  • Campus alerts and updates. 
  • "Safe Walk" virtual campus safety escort. 
  • Two-way text communication with campus police with optional anonymous mode. 
  • Call directory with campus resources. 

Rave Guardian is an integrated feature of K-State Alerts, the university's emergency notification system. The phone numbers added by K-Staters to receive text/call alerts will appear in the Guardian app, but to modify or change these numbers, users must log in to K-State Connect and select the K-State Alerts tab under the Profile section. 

The Guardian app is free for all current K-Staters but some features won't be available until July 6. Download it on iTunes or Google Play. Search for "Rave Guardian" with the blue shield icon.
