About this app

The GoodSAM Responder App is a professional deployment system used by Emergency Services around the world.

GoodSAM provides a range of solutions connecting those with specific skill sets to those in need, for example:

- GoodSAM Cardiac – This system is used by ambulance services to alert those trained in resuscitation (e.g. off duty paramedics, nurses, doctors, police and fire staff) to those nearby who are likely to be in cardiac arrest. This system has saved many lives around the world.
- GoodSAM Volunteer Response – GoodSAM is a platform used by organisations such as the Royal Voluntary Service and British Red Cross.
- GoodSAM Pro – This is a professional dispatch system for community first responders and the emergency services.

The App utilises the latest in location technology and has many advanced features including a built in “radio” (Buzz) function so you can communicate with surrounding colleagues.

The GoodSAM platform has saved hundreds of lives and helped many thousands of people around the world. If you can help your community, please download the App and register under your parent organisation (or get your parent organisation on board if they are not on!).

Only seem to get alerts through when I have the tab switched to 'off duty' and I'm unavailable because I'm already at work etc. Turning it to 'on duty' when I am available seems to stop alerts coming through. Also drains phone battery like crazy whether on or off.

Hi Lianne, There is a slider for location accuracy under the "Me" tab, please put it all the way to the left, turning up accuracy consumes more battery. The only alerts you can receive if you are off-duty are Cardiac Arrests, these should be very rare and when they happen, they would be critical hence some ambulance services choose to alert anyway.

Very good, occasionally locks up. A restart of the device resolves it.

The only tasks I get are down the other end of the country, no matter how many times I reset my distances each day they get ignored. Very frustrating. I've given up trying to volunteer because of this. *thank you for you quick reply. I will look into this because I didn't choose this option when joining.

Hi Claire, you are part of the NHS Volunteer Scheme. The tasks you are receiving are "Check-In-And-Chat" tasks, it involves you calling someone who is lonely or isolated. Since these tasks only need a phone call, the distance does not matter. If you don't wish to receive these tasks, please login to the GoodSAM website and alter your preferences.
