A new software app, which is capable of hastening security agents and health officials’ response to victims of insecurity and disasters has been launched in Nigeria.
Launched by two organisations —Halogen Group and Emergency Response Africa (ERA) — the app, which is named SIGNAL, was designed to provide critical support in times of crisis and disasters.
The app, which is now available on the Google Play Store and iOS app store, reflects an alliance by the two emergency response organisations to enable users to request both medical aid and security services during emergencies by leveraging the expertise and resources of both organisations.
Speaking yesterday on the new app, the CEO, Halogen Group Wale Olaoye, said the launch of the expanded SIGNAL Emergency app is a significant milestone for crisis management in Nigeria as it gives a maximum response time of less than 10 minutes for every case.
Halogen, said Olaoye, shares ERA’s commitment to providing urgent help to all persons, without bias; aiming to have a maximum response time of less than 10 minutes for every case.
