Deliver Emergency Care Anywhere

Beacon is a text message-based emergency dispatch software for emergency responders and agencies that need better communications.

Designed by Trek Medics International, Beacon makes emergency dispatch possible anywhere there’s a mobile phone signal by relaying requests for emergency assistance as text messages to the nearest trained responders — with or without internet on any mobile phone. Beacon works as a wireless emergency alert system and automates the dispatching process by guiding the nearest available emergency care providers to quickly locate, treat, and transport emergency victims to healthcare facilities.

And now you can set it up on your own.

Beacon: Emergency Medical Dispatch - 9-1-1 Where There Is None

Why Beacon?

Beacon was built to improve access to emergency care anywhere.

To do that, we had to build a new emergency dispatch software for the mobile age. Something that was flexible, yet robust. Something that could stand alone on its own, but would also integrate easily with legacy computer-aided dispatch (CAD) systems. Above all, we had to build something that could be used on any phone, with or without internet — that meant in the cloud with a backup on the ground.

 

Today, with the release of our new Beacon Emergency App for iPhone and Android platforms, and the launch of the new do-it-yourself dispatch portal, we’re confident Beacon is the most complete dispatching platform available today at the most affordable rate.
