Wits University collaborated with mySOS – a free emergency app for smartphones.
A dedicated Wits button is available for all Wits staff and students in the app. If you experience any Wits related emergency, just press the button and you will immediately be connected to Campus Control. They will also receive your GPS coordinates so they can respond faster!
mySOS also offers access to appropriate emergency assistance throughout South Africa when
- you don’t know who to call
- you don’t know where you are
- you want to notify your emergency contacts about your emergency and the exact location
- you want your emergency contacts and the emergency services to navigate directly to your location in an emergency
