OUR STORY

Our story is simple. Over the span of twenty years, we created the blueprint for emergency response technology that has been utilized for military bases, maximum security prisons, airports and nuclear facilities globally. Our work has helped some of the most sensitive and vulnerable places - areas where there is no room for failure. When a crisis occurs, we only have seconds to react. The world has rapidly changed, but some of its technology has not kept pace. Traditionally, we know to dial 911 if we’re having an emergency. Our experience in security dictates that most 911 calls often end in a lack of crucial information and communication. This can often result in an overall failure for a successful resolution to your crisis. In most emergencies callers may not know where they are, due to the intensity of the crisis. And in some cases, the caller cannot speak or is at a loss for words. That’s why we designed emCall. With just 3 taps your emergency is immediately sent to our 5-Diamond professional alarm monitoring center where our operators go into action to get first responders right to your location with your personal information. When sending a medical alert, emCall's unique patent pending method of relaying your personal medical information to first responders eliminates errors in communication and language discrepancies, also saving you critical moments in your emergency and increasing your chances of a successful resolution.

Not developed from a whim, our team is the only one to bring decades of experience and expertise in emergency response technology to the Apple and Android smartphones.
