MOBILE DISPATCHING FOR

PREHOSPITAL EMERGENCY CARE

Coordinate prehospital responders on any phone

9-1-1 Where There Is None

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

Designed by Trek Medics International, Beacon makes emergency dispatching 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 automates the dispatching process by guiding the nearest available emergency care providers to quickly locate, treat, and transport emergency victims to healthcare facilities.

Beacon helps emergency response groups overcome three fundamental challenges in delivering rapid prehospital emergency care whenever it’s needed:

1. BEACON MAKES EMERGENCY RESPONSE EFFICIENT

Whether you’re responding to one emergency incident in one town with five responders, or you’re responding to 25 emergencies in one province with 300 responders, Beacon reduces the need for redundant, time-consuming and error-prone radio chatter by automating the predictable aspects of emergency response through any kind of mobile phone

2. BEACON REDUCES RESPONSE TIMES

Beacon decentralizes emergency dispatching so that anyone carrying a mobile phone can be dispatched to emergency incidents, enabling first responders to get on scene well ahead of the ambulance and giving them the ability to manage incoming resources from their own phones

3. BEACON REDUCES TECHNOLOGY COSTS

Mobile phones have radically changed the landscape and Beacon is taking full advantage of the opportunity. Whether you have legacy CAD systems, or you have no system, Beacon offers a comprehensive dispatching solution that will easily integrate with whatever existing communications you have

PREHOSPITAL PROFILES

Beacon Emergency Dispatch Platform

HOW IT WORKS

PREHOSPITAL EMERGENCY CARE

1. EMERGENCY ALERT

A dispatcher receives a call from a witness to an emergency incident, collects their information and sends it as a text message alert to all available responders.

2. RESPONDER DISPATCH

After receiving replies from available resources, Beacon determines the nearest and most appropriate vehicles and personnel according to the dispatchers criteria, and instructs those responders to proceed to the incident location.

3.  CONFIRM ON-SCENE

Once the responders have located the patient(s), they inform Beacon that they are on-scene.

4. REQUEST MORE RESOURCES

The first responder to confirm arrival on-scene is marked as “Incident Commander’ and is given the option to request additional resources according to needs encountered on-scene.

5. HOSPITAL TRANSPORT

When transport has been confirmed, the responder indicates to Beacon which facility they’ll be going to, with how many patients, and what their expected arrival will be.

6. PATIENT HANDOVER

While the patient is being transferred to the appropriate facility and advanced notification message is sent to the receiving hospital, including additional options for online medical direction.
