Introduction: WolEvac

WolEvac is our emergency management tool. It gives you the ability to quickly and easily account for everyone in the event of an emergency. With each emergency event backed with detailed post event reporting.

WolEvac is a web application compatible with iOS (iPhone and iPad), Microsoft (Phone & Surface) and Android (Phone and Tablet).


WolEvac enables you to: 

Run emergencies: Track cleared zones, allow people to self-verify their safety via SMS, view requests for help and monitor real-time evacuation progress all within WolEvac. The data stored within WolEvac allows first responders, wardens and safety marshals to have accurate information in an emergency; share critical messages, view real-time verification process and manually verify the safety of everyone on-site. 

Post emergency reporting: Run detailed reports on emergency communications, mustering and evacuations. These reports provide valuable insight into the efficiency of your emergency procedures for review. 

User types

WolEvac has two types of users; managers and assistants: 

Managers (normally the safety marshal, fire or floor warden) can create and close WolEvac events from their phone.

Assistants are invited to join a new WolEvac event when the event is created by a Manager and can collaborate with each other to verify cleared zones or areas, and the safety of employees, visitors and contractors. 

They can: 

  • Track that Zones are cleared
  • Send SMS/Text asking #AreYouSafe
  • Perform a manual roll-call
  • Share messages with other WolEvac users
  • View ‘need help’ requests from people NOT safe
  • View real-time verification progress
  • View post evacuation reports
Please Note: WolEvac is not available in the app store. It needs to be saved to your phone as a shortcut, bookmark or pin.


How does WolEvac know which people are on-site at the time of the evacuation?

Anyone signed in when the evacuation event is created will be counted as on-site during the evacuation. Using WhosOnLocation you can: 

  • Manage visitor traffic
  • Manage contractor and supplier presence
  • Manage employee presence
Please Note: The integrity of the data in WolEvac is only as good as your organizations policing of tracking people's presence onsite.

What phones can be used?

WolEvac will work with any mobile phone with a web browser.

How many employees can we make WolEvac users?

You can have as many employees as WolEvac users as you like. Typically users are safety marshals, and/or fire and floor wardens.

Do I have to pay for using WolEvac?

No. It’s a free add-on with all subscriptions as we understand the importance of you having the ability to manage the safety and security of everyone on-site.

Do I pay for SMS messages used to send WolEvac alerts? 

All subscriptions come with SMS credits. If you go over your subscription limit, you will need to purchase additional SMS credits. Charges for SMS packs vary depending on your country. You can view SMS charges here.

How do I buy an additional SMS pack?

Please email and request to purchase additional SMS packs.

What if I run out of SMS credits and we need to use WolEvac for an emergency event?

No problem. In good faith we will honor any SMS usage and send you an invoice post the evacuation event.
