Full Story


  • To improve response to incidents the Red Cross required location technology that would locate incidents as well as allow central team leaders to locate field support teams to ensure that appropriate numbers and types of emergency staff reached incidents more rapidly


  • BlackBerry® smartphone
  • Neosistic application, GPS+


  • With the BlackBerry® solution, emergency staff receive real-time, precise incident locations cutting unit response time by 30 seconds
  • The time spent creating post-incident reports was reduced by 66% and now each report includes an exact record of the positions and times of all actions within any incident
  • Barcelona Red Cross teams already used BlackBerry smartphones so implementing Neosistic’s GPS+ application incurred almost no extra cost, but greatly improved its service to the public
