Realizing that access to critical information was difficult during an emergency, members of Texas A&M Health Science Center's Environmental Health and Safety department developed a mobile app that would give campus community members instant access to emergency instructions and information through their phones. The app has been so successful that the university's IT department created a start-up venture, named m2s3 Holdings, Inc., to facilitate commercialization of the app.
