The Harrogate Advanced Bikes meeting on 11th April is at Bilton Cricket Club, Bilton Lane, Harrogate HG1 3DQ. at 7:00 for 7:30.
British APCO (the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials), on behalf of the Government 999 Liaison Committee, has launched the 999 App Certification scheme providing a route for developers to propose Apps that will automatically and directly link to the relevant emergency service via the 999 system in a time of need.
The first App to be certified by the panel is REALRIDER®, a motorcycle App designed to keep riders safe and connected. Created by innovative SME Realsafe Technologies, REALRIDER® crash alerts send a motorcyclist’s last known GPS location and medical details to the nearest ambulance service, via BT’s 999 emergency service, within minutes of a crash.
Andrew Richardson, Chief Commercial Officer of Realsafe Technologies Ltd, (Parent Company of REALRIDERS) is coming to the meeting on the 11th and will give an overview on the new App and how the 999 accreditation was achieved.
Andrew is an advanced rider with the IAM, Durham.
