SafeTracer's Inclusive Design Helps Every Mobile Emergency Caller Automatically Dial and Be GPS Located, In Seconds, Safely
When every second counts, Emergency Caller dialing assistance with speech-free click and text responses, can make a life or death difference to billions of people.
Does your technology do the best it can to protect and locate ALL your mobile users in an Emergency?
Emergency on all 2.5 billion active smartphones is the same.
Click Emergency on any smartphone, it will not call Emergency. Instead, another built-in screen opens with the words "Emergency call" over the top of a keypad where users dial 911, 112 or any of the other 130+ different Emergency numbers that vary by country.
"911, What's your Emergency & location?"
Caller: silence... muffled sounds...
When First Responder dispatchers answer this call from either a smartphone or a wearable device, not all of them instantly know the caller's location. The caller's only choices are to speak or hangup.
Help First Responders save millions of costly lifesaving hours spent following up on misdials and hangups from mobile devices.
Globally 1/3 of Emergency calls are hangups and "butt dials" from smartphones & watches. Updating the Emergency Caller keypad screen to one that no mobile user can click, swipe or tap by mistake, stops these costly Emergency misdial false alarms, saving First Responders millions of lifesaving hours. Also getting every caller’s Emergency phone number & GPS location clearly in seconds, before anyone talks or hangs up, gives dispatchers peace of mind.
"84 million 911 calls a year are by mistake in the USA. These calls are a huge waste of resources and increase the risk that legitimate 911 calls and First Responders will be delayed", according to FCC Commissioner Mike O'Rielly.
SafeTracer's assistive, user controlled, patented solution is easy and inclusively designed to prevent Emergency Call delays due to user hesitation, people not knowing their GPS location or misdial errors.
Initially callers give permission to share their contact information and GPS location in seconds in an Emergency. Each user's intent is then confirmed by tracing a random shape completely. To protect the caller, the screen transforms, enabling additional caller safety abilities: mute the dispatcher, text-to-speech, send medical information or end the call.
Who walks around knowing their exact GPS location when an Emergency strikes them?
Today's standard Emergency caller screens need a safety inclusive design update. SafeTracer added simple click and text to speech response options. Why? Because speaking isn't always possible or safe in an Emergency and First Responders still need help locating people calling from mobile devices, in the USA and worldwide.
An inclusive design on mobile devices ensures every person in an Emergency situation has the ability to use their Emergency Caller screens to dial, be located and self respond in seconds, verbally or silently.

People simply click Police, Ambulance or Fire,
