The Beacon mobile app is the responder client interface for the Beacon Emergency Dispatch platform. A registered agency account is required for full platform functionality.

Users must first have their phone numbers registered in an Agency Account on the Beacon Emergency Dispatch platform in order to receive incident alerts from their response agency.

Beacon is a dispatch platform for emergency and crisis response agencies that need better communications.

Designed by Trek Medics International, Beacon makes emergency dispatch possible anywhere there’s a mobile phone signal by relaying requests for emergency assistance to the nearest responders — with or without internet on any mobile phone. Beacon works as a cloud-based emergency coordinating system that allows both automated and manual dispatching by guiding responders to quickly locate, treat, and transport emergency victims.

The Beacon mobile app improves upon the Beacon SMS interface by providing an upgraded experience for smartphone users, including:

• Graphic user interface
• Interactive incident maps
• Group and private chat groups
• Audio, text and push-to-talk messaging
• HIPAA-compliant case reports
• GPS location services
• Multiple languages
• Workflows for different responder types
• Individual and agency performance reports


Beacon allows decentralized dispatching to build emergency response networks anywhere there’s a mobile phone signal.

Beacon pulls the cord on traditional “9-1-1” emergency dispatch technologies, allowing any personal device or laptop to receive alerts and automate the emergency response workflow.

Lots of responders? Lots of incidents? Users with both smartphones and feature phones? Beacon works as a standalone dispatch system or augments existing ones to meet local needs on a large scale.

Interactions with Beacon require minimal input, designed to be easily followed and predictable with minimal training time required.
