HERE I AM APP OFFICIAL LAUNCH
January 19, 2022
On Tuesday, December 17, 2019, the staff of the Here I Am App celebrated a historic day with the official launch of their new lifesaving mobile phone app. The Here I Am App lets family and friends know when you’re in a time of need. At the press of a button on the home screen of your phone, up to three family members and/or friends will be notified via text message almost instantly that you are in need of emergency help and what your exact GPS location is. What’s more, the Here I Am App allows users to input medical information about themselves including blood type and other health-related concerns they have which may provide details of the medical situation they may be facing.
The idea is that the person(s) receiving the message is/are to call their local 911 or EMS services on behalf of the person in need. As the person in need may not be in the same 911 or EMS service 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.
The event was held at the recently opened Audley Road Community Centre in North Ajax, and was attended by various local dignitaries including Ajax Councillors Ash Khan and Lisa Bowers. Representing Ajax Member of Parliament, Mark Holland, was Dev Ramkallie. Other guests included Iris Nicholaison, Jacquelynn Tanner and Pat Doyle of the Ajax-Pickering Board of Trade and friends, Charlie Slack of Sunshade Blinds and Drapery, Steve Graham of Herongate Barn Dinner Theatre, Rob MacArthur of Rob Mac Productions, Zahra Hariri of Zahra’s School of Belly Dance and Fareed Salam of Ajax Optical. The event was coordinated by founder and president Paul Taalman and CEO Khurram Qureshi. Special thanks go out to Mukarram Qureshi of DigiPix Inc. for photography and video coverage.
