Rave Alert

All Merrimack College students, faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to sign up for Rave Alert to enable police services to contact you in case of a campuswide emergency.

Rave Guardian

Download the Rave Guardian app for your smartphone (free from the Apple app store). You will need a merrimack.edu email address to download the full app, but family and friends can download a limited version that allows them some functionality.

 There are three major components to Guardian:

  • Emergency call function. One-touch calling for local 911 or Merrimack College police.
  • Safety timer. Schedule your trip, designated a “guardian,” and let that person track your route and timing, so he or she will know right away if you encounter difficulty.
  • Confidential tip ability: Send a confidential text or photo to Merrimack  police.
