Introducing the Gael Safe App

Saint Mary’s College of California is putting safety in the hands of SMC community members. From sharing info on concerning behavior to reporting safety hazards, Gael Safe allows students and Campus Safety to communicate in two-way, real-time interactions. 

Gael Safe offers a number of features to help keep our campus community safe. Students, staff, and faculty can sign up for campus messages and notifications, for example, including fire safety information, building evacuation plans, and timely information on emergencies and disasters.
