The M-Urgency™ system utilizes context technology to provide the emergency operator with the location of the caller, health and special needs information other data relevant to the needs of a first responder and a complete live audio/video stream of the user’s situation as it is happening.
M-Urgency™ System Components
The M-Urgency™ System consists of the following components:
- M-Urgency Caller (iOS and Android mobile clients)
- M-Urgency™ Server
- M-Urgency™ Console (desktop client)
- M-Urgency Responders consoles (desktop, iOS and Android mobile clients)
The emergency operator is provided with complete situational awareness scenario of the caller’s condition and can immediately evaluate the seriousness of the contact and initiate an optimal response based on the live video stream, location and caller's information.
The dispatcher can combine multiple callers responding to the same situation into an incident which is managed as a cohesive event.
The dispatcher operator is provided with map views of the adjacent areas that show the location of all emergency responders including fire, medical and police, traffic and weather information are also included to provide the dispatcher with complete context of the unfolding situation. The Dispatcher than selects from among available first responders based on required resources and conditions and passes the incident to their mobile console of the selected first responder assigning them control of the situation. The responders console then provides the real-time streaming from the user devices and may selectively communicate with any caller.
