Wouldn’t Beacon be more streamlined if it had no human Dispatchers? Why not connect callers and victims directly to Responders?

The presence of a human dispatcher provides multiple advantages that are lost when channeled through an automated app:

  • Real-time feedback between caller and dispatcher
  • Ability to provide pre-arrival instructions over the phone much more easily
  • Talking on phone allows caller to keep their eyes on the scene of the emergency (and not the phone screen)
  • Dispatchers are able to pick up on context and background info (vs. trying to interpret text messages)
  • If you’re texting you can’t be giving CPR — but you can if it’s on speakerphone
