Beacon is a mobile-based emergency dispatch platform for emergency responders and agencies that need better communications.
Designed by Trek Medics International, and FirstNet verified, Beacon makes emergency dispatch possible anywhere there’s a mobile phone signal by relaying requests for emergency assistance to the nearest responders — with or without internet on any mobile phone. Beacon works as a cloud-based computer aided dispatch system that guides the nearest available emergency care providers to quickly locate, treat, and transport emergency victims to healthcare facilities.The Beacon mobile app improves upon the Beacon SMS module by providing an upgraded experience for smartphone users, including:
• Graphic user interface
• Interactive incident maps
• Group chat
• GPS location services
• Multiple languages
• Workflows for EMS and Fire
• Individual performance reports
Beacon allows decentralized dispatching to build emergency response networks anywhere there’s a mobile phone signal.
SIMPLE SET UP AND MANAGEMENT
Beacon cuts the cord on traditional “9-1-1” emergency dispatch technologies, allowing any personal device or laptop to receive alerts and automate the emergency response workflow.
Lots of responders? Lots of incidents? Users with both smartphones and feature phones? Beacon works as a standalone dispatch system or augments existing ones to meet local needs on a large scale.
Interactions with Beacon require minimal input, designed to be easily followed and predictable with minimal training time required.
