SOFT LAUNCH OF iOS & Android compatible App: SOS Zones - Your Safety Matters
By: SOS Zones Inc.
As a father, family man, caring colleague and concerned member of my community, the founder of SOS Zones, Farhan Zaidi was tired of watching people get hurt, go through physical and mental trauma or even as extreme as, face death.
Whenever there are sporadic weather issues, health hazard epidemics or life threatening situations, what options do people have for valuable- helpful information or easy ways out danger zones?
The question was simple:
HOW do we help people in times of distress and trauma? How do we prepare them, warn them and offer opportunities through the power of knowledge that can be the deciding factor of safety in peoples' lives?
SOS Zones is the solution to that problem!
A free app to the general public, the MVP will showcase how to use the app in 3 simple steps:
1. The users will be able to PIN addresses of their interest (kids school, spouses work, primary residence, your parents home etc.)
User can then select ALERTS from a variety of threats such as natural weather (ice storms, wind storms, tornadoes, snow storms etc.) and man created threats (terrorist activities, bombing, shooting, stabbing, etc.) A 2 km radius security ring will be established around the pinned address and if any threats occur the user will be alerted. Research shows even a second of a warning can help prevent catastrophe.
The app will MONITOR their zones and provide, updates & strategic solutions (i.e possible routes to take to leave the threatened zone also, routes to hospitals, police stations, fire stations etc.)Users in the area will be warned not to enter danger zones.
Currently, we have started with the Greater Toronto Area. Our aim is to be global by providing help to other high threat nations thatreally need SOS Zones. For opportunities to collaborate, please contact us through email or our social media channels. Our handles are as follows:
Let's make history together in the process to possibly save lives!
