Lightning Pitch: MUrgency – Global emergency response network
One global emergency response network.
MUrgency is a cloud platform and mobile application which connects individuals who need emergency response with their trusted network, other MUrgency app users, or credentialed medical, safety, rescue, and assistance professionals as the situation requires in emergency requests. MUrgency will save lives, provide support and render assistance in emergencies.
