This week, PULSE Product Manager Chad Richey is a featured presenter at the Waze Connected Citizens Program Summit at Google HQ in Paris. Chad was invited by Waze CCP to demonstrate how Genesis PULSE® with Waze integration significantly reduces response times for emergency vehicles.
Data reveals that 70 percent of the time crashes are reported by Waze users an average of 4.5 minutes before they are called into emergency response centers through 911.
Completing their onboarding process just a few short weeks ago, The Taney County Ambulance District (TCAD) needed a solution that included the ability to see their nearby partner EMS agencies while still protecting their own data. Genesis PULSE, along with its Replay & comprehensive reporting capabilities, was the solution. "We are excited to welcome TCAD to the rapidly growing Genesis family", said Chad Richey, PULSE Product Manager. Richey continued, "It’s so great to travel to these centers and see how they want to constantly improve their processes and response times while continuing to provide the best patient care possible, which sometimes means calling a partner agency to respond. It truly is about patient care and not about boundary lines."
TCAD has served the citizens and tourists of Taney County & Branson, MO since 1977 and operates a fleet of up to 17 ambulances responding to approximately 11,000 calls for service annually.
Google’s amazing new self-driving cars may be the coming wave of the future, but sadly, they will not eliminate traffic issues. Fortunately, the Waze traffic app (owned by Google) is already on the front lines, fighting traffic one “Wazer” at a time. “Robots will still need to know the best route. We have a nice juicy role,” says Di-Ann Eisnor, vice president of platform and partnerships for Waze.
