All of us here at Safe-Citizens are devoted to helping keep people safe in a sometimes challenging and dangerous world.

To that end, we have designed a platform that utilises citizens mobile phones to alert them if they are in the vicinity of a potentially dangerous incident.

The first platform specifically designed with public safety in mind- utilising the best technology has to offer combined with very clever proprietary technology.

We aim to be the #1 public safety platform, partnering with emergency management professionals everywhere to keep more people safe in a fast-changing world.
