WHAT IS THE HERE I AM APP?
The Here I Am App is a potentially lifesaving App that during the time of emergency allow users to notify up to three contacts via text message that they are in an emergency. And via GPS, where they are actually located, allowing emergency services to find them quickly when 9-1-1 can’t. The Here I Am App allows users to input information about themselves, including medical information such as; existing health concerns, previous traumas, allergies, blood group and their doctor’s contact information. It also allows the user to choose up to three contacts from their phone’s contact list that they would like to alert by text message in case of an emergency.
When sent, the text message will relay the user’s/sender’s medical information to each of their contacts along with the precise GPS coordinates of the user so those receiving the emergency text message will be able to inform 911 services as to who sent the emergency message, what medical condition(s) the sender may have and where the sender is presently located.
The idea is that the person(s) receiving the message is to call their local 911 or EMS services on behalf of the person in need. As this person in need may not be in the same 911 or EMS services area as the person(s) receiving the message, by giving the 911 operator the person in need’s exact GPS location, the local 911 operator will be able to connect the person calling on behalf of the person in need with a 911 service local to where the person in need is located.
When notifying your emergency contact(s) that you have chosen them to be your emergency contact in the event they receive an emergency message from you, request that they call their local 911 or EMS services on your behalf.
