Mobile, geo-location and social technologies have radically changed consumer services in the past decade. Yet, we still manage our public safety like it was 1980. In addition, the amazing emergency crews working so hard to keep people safe are overworked and understaffed. Musketeer leverages peer-to-peer technology combined with a special algorithm that sorts the qualifications of the Musketeer and sends alerts accordingly. It enables ordinary civilians to help others in a multitude of situations. For example, it takes 4 - 6 minutes to choke to death, but the average ambulance response time in a US city is 11 - 14 minutes. Approximately 30% of the US population knows First Aid, and one of those people could be right next door, and would come to help if they knew. Musketeer enables that help. Now imagine how both citizens would feel after - pretty amazing for the survivor and like a hero for the person helping.
Musketeer does not replace emergency services - it complements them. Over 40% of the 8 million annual 911 calls in California are non-emergency calls that could be handled by a person nearby. Musketeer is able to notify emergency services, while enabling private citizens to respond instantly. Musketeer relieves the stress on city services, reducing the number of calls, so that professionals can deal with emergencies efficiently and quickly.
Smart Cities subscribe to Musketeer, and thus are continuously updated on the type, time, location and urgency of incidents, as well as the number of people helping and being helped over time. This data enables cities to make smarter decisions - focusing on problematic areas and prioritizing the most critical issues.
