A Namola Community is a safe space within the Namola App, where community members can share their emergencies, post about suspicious behaviour, receive safety alerts, and help out members of your community.
Think Facebook and Whatsapp Community group, but much better for safety in your local area:
Less noisy: Designed to alert you about the safety stuff, not the chit-chat.
Designed for Safety: Namola is your one-stop safety shop
Get Help Fast: Incidents reported with the 🆘 SOS button also go to our 24/7 national emergency Response Centre, to help you and your community get the right help 🦸🏽♀️.
No group size limit: Everyone in your local community can join your Namola Community. Local safety shouldn’t be an exclusive club of 256 enthusiasts.
Know where the incidents happen: Every SOS is automatically geotagged📍so you don’t have to waste time explaining where it happened.
Namola Communities ensures residents stay informed of any safety-related news and creates a safer place for you to live by increasing awareness of emergencies, suspicious behaviour and crime in general. Communities is a feature built into the Namola app that allows users from a certain area to create groups (called 'Communities') where other users from the same area (or associated organisation) can join and reach out, engage, and support one another to help preserve and promote community safety.
Community members can post, share and even comment on safety-related incidents as well as report any irregular behaviour within their immediate area. Their emergency SOS's can also be pushed directly through to their Communities, to allow for immediate community response. Community admins can create, manage and invite community members to their community group.
