The U.S. Fleet Forces Command has kicked off a pilot program to help sailors and their family members access safety and security resources with the use of a mobile application.
Under the six-month pilot program, sailors and their families based in Hampton Roads, Virginia and Rota, Spain will be able to communicate and view locations and hours for emergency services through region-specific maps displayed on the LiveSafe app, the Navy said Wednesday.
“The basic concept was to design a mobile app to help sailors with prevention by providing a one-stop shop for all of their needs,” said Capt. Charles Marks, sexual assault prevention and response officer at U.S. Fleet Forces.
LiveSafe includes links to information on various Navy programs such as sexual assault prevention and response, family advocacy, suicide prevention, drug and alcohol abuse prevention and policy changes.
The app is available for download from the Apple‘s App Store and the Google‘s Play Store, with an option for offline availability.
