Operating Internationally, GoodSAM (Good Smartphone Activated Medics) is the world's most advanced emergency alerting platform. The app allows alerters to dial the emergency services, and at the same time notify nearby medically qualified responders of a medical emergency. By alerting responders of an emergency, GoodSAM connects those in need with those who have the skills to provide critical help before the emergency services arrive.
We are saving lives in the community. Join us: download the GoodSAM Alerter app today.
The difference early CPR and defibrillation makes can be crucial - that's where you come in. If you
are trained in first aid, download the GoodSAM Responder App today. You'll then be alerted when you
are in the immediate vicinity of a cardiac arrest, so that you can start CPR or basic first aid in
the critical minutes before the emergency services arrive. The GoodSAM platform is highly governed
and secure, with checks to ensure that all Responders are medically qualified. Once verified, you'll
join our network of community lifesavers.

In the event of a life threatening emergency, press the red Emergency button and the App will call the emergency services and alert the three nearest responders. Simply talk with the emergency service in the normal way.
You can now trigger an Alert from your watch. Simply install the app and press the red Emergency button on your watch.
You can open the video stream in an emergency - this relays video to the emergency responders en route and also to the local ambulance service (if they use this feature).
The Alerter App can also measure a patient's heart and breathing rate. It can do this through the camera or simply by placing the phone on the patient's chest. Try it out!
Please read the code of conduct and try a simulation. When alerted you will hear a siren. Only go if able, safe and do not drive. Only perform basic life saving treatments in your skill set. Hand over to the emergency services. Green men = from your organisation, red = from other organisations.
GoodSAM has a messaging feature so you can communicate with other responders around you. This can be used to meet for coffee as well as in emergencies! Upload a profile picture within the App so the GoodSAM community know who you are!
This enables you to see the patient and scene before you arrive. Simply click on the circle on the map to make it full screen. Tap again to see the map.
GoodSAM has over 13,000 Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) on the system. Please keep adding to this through the defibrilocator tool!
Governance of GoodSAM is paramount. All responders have ID and certification verified. A code of conduct has been developed with London Ambulance Service but can be modified for local specifics.
This enables organisation administrators to verify their responders and see their current location on map. Members can be individually push notified or mass messaged.
Our API can to used to integrate with Computer Aided Dispatch of Ambulance services. The API is highly flexible in terms of trigger variables, number and type of responders and radius of Alerts and can be tailored to individual ambulance service requirements.
GoodSAM can be used to locate all members in and event of major incidents. This feature can then be used to coordinate dispatch / resources in conjunction with standard MI protocols.
