Solution Impact

The top problem for individuals during an emergency is coordination and logistics. Nobody wants to fumble around figuring out where to go, what to do, how to get there, who to contact. Smergency replaces all that clumsiness with an easy to use under pressure tool.

Time to safety [average time it takes a person to move from danger or medical situation to safety] is dramatically reduced with Smergency.
