This article explains how to create Danger Zones in the OnGuard application. 

What are Danger geofences?

When users enter a Danger Zone, their device will automatically trigger an Emergency Alert. When users exit the Danger Zone they automatically go back into safe mode (green). 

This feature is useful if you want to prevent workers from entering a zone with a high associated risk to health and life. It can also be dropped on a group of people to alert them of a dangerous situation to make them evacuate.
