For over 10 years, Trek Medics has been providing humanitarian and emergency response agencies with the technology needed to send the right responder to the right location at the right time. In this webinar, Trek Medics and program partners will share how they've collaborated to manage community-based emergency response systems using their Beacon dispatch platform, a cloud-based response system that enables emergency, disaster, and crisis response organizations to seamlessly alert, coordinate, and track their responders using readily-available mobile technologies, with or without Internet. Adaptable and innovative, Beacon is used in more than 20 countries by a variety of agencies, including emergency medical services, disaster response, mental health and domestic violence crisis groups.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • How Trek Medics and program partners assess emergency care capabilities and needs in resource-limited settings
  • The technology and strategies used to address the challenges encountered in launching and managing community-based emergency response systems
