Flare

The 911 of the future, Flare is building a brand-new emergency response system, which launched commercially in Kenya in January 2018. The company’s digital platform brings together the East African 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. Aiming to launch in all countries that do not have existing emergency systems, Flare is already the largest such network in Kenya, with a network of more than 400 ambulances. It has already completed 350 life-saving rescues, and reduced its average response time to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, it has launched its membership product, Rescue, to market and provided around 28,000 Kenyans with coverage.
