The GEOS emergency response service is now available to Iridium Extreme™ satellite phone customers at no additional cost. The GEOS service is integrated into the dedicated, two-way emergency SOS button on the Iridium Extreme. A quick press of the SOS button automatically dials the GEOS emergency response center, providing a connection to a support representative.
GEOS receives emergency alerts and notifies response search-and-rescue authorities via a global, 24/7/365 service through its International Emergency Response Coordination Center (IERCC) in Houston, Texas. The IERCC has translation capabilities for up to 200 languages and has coordinated thousands of responses in more than 100 countries since 2007.
Now, in the event of an emergency, customers can maintain ongoing contact with the GEOS IERCC for reassurance that help is on the way. Get the details on this first-ever emergency service integration from the press release.
