MassRelay Numbers and Instructions



All Merrimack College Students, Faculty and Staff are strongly encouraged to sign up for RAVE ALERT by clicking here or the link on the menu to the left to enable Police Services to contact you in case of a campus wide emergency.


Download the Rave Guardian app for your smartphone (free from the Apple app store). You will need a 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.
