Emergencies happen every day, and ePACT can be used in any emergency situation – big or small. Here are just a few examples of how ePACT can help in a crisis:
- An individual is sick or injured at work, and a relative or friend can support them at the hospital or provide critical information if they are unconscious (e.g. allergies, blood type, medications)
- A child is sick at daycare and the parents can’t be reached, so a friend or relative must be contacted to help care for the child
- A school crisis, such as a flood or fire, requires students to be evacuated and picked up by their parents or alternate guardians
- A large scale disaster, like an earthquake, requires individuals, families and organizations to implement their own plans and use their own supplies, rather than relying on over-taxed emergency services.
