About the Project

Description

To send precomposed emergency requests going through our app, for those aged 55 years and older while alerting a distant relative.

Our app alerts nearby hospitals or paramedics with a push of a button. You click the button and paramedics accept request to know where to pick you.

When the condition is confirmed, the app routes them to the appropriate testing facility or hospital based on their location.

Map-Based App where Quarantined, Isolated or At-Risk elderly people can make request to get an ambulance easier and faster.

How far along is it

We are offering this in California and hope it expands to other cities. We have been in touch with the Fire Department in Vista but need more referrals.
