Flare

The Kenyan company provides support to emergency response teams in the country through its software infrastructure. The company’s digital platform brings together the country’s fragmented ecosystem of emergency vehicles, and uses GPS tracking and Google navigation to route the most appropriate responders to each emergency scene as requested by users, said Fast Company. With a network of over 400 ambulances, Flare has already completed 350 life-saving rescues and reduced its average response time to 20 minutes. It has also launched its membership product, Rescue, to the market and provided around 28,000 Kenyans with coverage. The company’s aim is to launch in all countries that do not have existing emergency systems.
