Reimagining Ambulance Services

Taking an ambulance can save a life

Using an ambulance during an emergency in Kenya is still the exception. Only 1 in 10 people arrive in an ambulance at an Accident & Emergency department (often called an A&E).  There are likely a number of reasons for this – it’s expensive, there are hundreds of numbers to call, a lack of trust that the ambulance will show up, and the list goes on.

However, did you know that in countries where 911 exists the chance of you surviving an emergency is 10 times higher? And did you know that in Nairobi alone there are over 100 ambulances?  

rescue.co changes emergency response

At rescue.co, we make it an easy choice to use an ambulance during an emergency. There’s only one number to call. That number goes to our 24/7 dispatch center. At the dispatch center, we have trained paramedics and nurses who immediately provide care over the phone, and can dispatch the closest, best-equipped ambulance in seconds using our technology.
