In today’s scenario of massive migrations, earthquakes, tsunami, calamities, storms, floods, and terrorism, in addition to a country’s emergency capacity load, the need to wide-scale GeoVolunteering is great. GooZam Organization Founder and CEO, Enoch Cruz, on his recent travels to the Philippines, saw the disparity in first response services. Impressed to act upon this need, the GooZam Organization immediately sought alliance with Bike Scouts Philippines (a 1000 member volunteer organization), Advance Aiders, Smart Communications Inc., and local government agencies while continuing to enlist synergies with international volunteer based organizations like Red Cross, American Heart Association, United Way, UNICEF, United Nations humanitarian agencies, and NGOs to scale supply of available GeoVolunteers on the GooZam App.
About the app and features Pressing any of the distress buttons does 6 actions, simultaneously; 1. Dials 911 or the equivalent service, auto-activates speakers for hands-free emergencies. 2. SMS Emergency Contacts with the distressed locations, 3. Hails a GeoVolunteer within proximity, 4. Shoots an email to the insurance carrier. 5. Using data, updates an emergency management web portal, and 6. If enabled posts the configured emergency message onto your Facebook Timeline and sends it to your chosen emergency Facebook Messenger contacts.
The GooZam Organization believes that developing Good Samaritans through the GooZam method of GeoVolunteering and CPR/First-Aid training in tandem with equipping them with the GooZam App and the cloud-based system infrastructure is essential in providing effective crowdsourced first-response.
