OUR COVERAGE

SECURITY

According to Statistics-SA, right now crime conditions in South Africa have begun a slow decline since its initial spike in the late 90’s. However, our crime statistics are still high, by worldwide standards, and the rate of decline exhibits a mere 1.4% per year. In reality, this means that although the physical number of criminal incidents have diminished marginally, overall criminal activity is still significantly high.

The concentration of serious crime in South Africa remains high in densely populated cities, focused more intensely in urban, and suburban areas. Although Public Services, in the form of the South African Police Service, and Public Healthcare Emergency Response exists, resources are limited. “High Spike” times of the day and week (for example, Friday nights) result in overburdened public services that are often overwhelmed, slowing response-time.

Right now, SA-SOS provides a “safety-net” for users by supplementing these services with fast acting private service-providers. Although private home-security has become a standard feature for many middle-class South African families, SA-SOS seeks to expand that level of security to external, public environments, integrated on a National basis

The benefits include peace of mind when you, or your loved-ones travel, a lighter load on public services and faster, more effective mitigation of overall criminal activity in cities.

Armed response:

All agents are equipped with the necessary resources to react to a crisis situation (e.g. firearms, body armour, tracking devices as well as cellular phones and a closed-line radio system).

Vehicle Tracking and Recovery:

In the event of your vehicle being stolen or hi-jacked, the call centre will communicate via the GSM network with the vehicle to obtain its position and dispatch reaction teams (air and ground) to recover the vehicle. Our Reaction Services are able to recover vehicles on a National basis with teams in 95 towns throughout South Africa as well as in Sub-Sahara Countries.

Armed and Unarmed Escorts:

We specialise in armed and unarmed escorts depending on the client’s needs. All personnel is fully trained and are backed by a National ground team structure and Control Centre.

MEDICAL RESPONSE

There is a term used by paramedics and doctors... “the golden hour”. It refers to the first hour after a physicallytraumatic, or possibly fatal injury. The Golden Hour is the time in which the most effective lifesaving interventions can be applied. Depending on the severity of the injury, the chances of survival diminish with every minute that passes, becoming more and more unlikely as time passes.

Immediate medical response is absolutely vital in the event of a severe injury, as the timing very often means the difference between life and death. The SA-SOS APP automatically sends private medical response assistance, and your exact location, the moment you press that button.

Highly trained and extremely dedicated operators, make immediate informed decisions about the nature and extent of the call. Sophisticated dispatching software, mapping technology and medical databases allow the staff to provide a seamless service to emergency and non-emergency callers.

Emergency Medical Response to the scene of a Medical Emergency:

In the event of a medical emergency, an appropriate route will be undertaken to dispatch an ambulance or a rapid response vehicle, immediately to the scene of a medical emergency where appropriate lifesaving support will be provided where relevant, the member will be stabilised before transportation is provided to the closest and most appropriate medical facility either by Road or Air.

Medical Transportation by Ground or Air Ambulance:

In the event of a Medical Emergency, we will arrange Emergency Medical Transportation by Road or Air under appropriate medical supervision, if necessary, to the nearest medical facility capable of providing adequate care.

Emergency Medical Advice and Assistance Hotline:

Personnel shall be available 24-hours a day to provide general medical information and advice.
This is an advisory service, as a telephonic conversation does not permit an accurate diagnosis. In addition to the general medical advice service, one call to 0861 435 4822 will trigger the medical operators to guide a person through a medical crisis situation, involving the member by providing emergency advice or by organising for the member to receive the support required, utilising the 24-hour Contact Centre Doctor.

We have also established working relationships with all the provincial services to assist in situations where no private ambulances are available in a specific area of each province.
