MDA Launches World’s First Emergency Mobile Video App

Posted By : Devick Sellam April 12, 2016

In an effort to “see” the scene of an emergency and dispatch the most appropriate vehicles and personnel faster, MDA recently partnered with Israeli startup Reporty Homeland Security to launch the world’s first mobile video emergency app.

Barak and MDAMDA’s use of new technology gives dispatchers and civilians the chance to save even more lives simply by sharing a live video feed from a smartphone. The collaboration has the backing of former Israeli prime minister and defense minister Ehud Barak, who has previously spoken on behalf of AFMDA at the Celebration of Life Gala in Palm Beach, Fla.

“The app will allow callers to obtain immediate service at the push of a button, even via text messages, and give our dispatchers critical information about the location of an incident and even enable them to receive video broadcasts from the scene,” said MDA Director-General Eli Bin. “This will help MDA teams shorten response times to every call.”
