Official services are quickly becoming overwhelmed. And in other parts of the world, they are non-existent. We can solve this. We can all become each other’s first responders. What we’ve lacked is a way to flash-organize peer alert response. Mobile devices now give us this power. Guardian Circle is an “open source 9-1-1” intelligence grid that we can all tap into to both give and receive help -- for emergencies both large and small. When you’re trouble, there is usually help literally all around you. Guardian Circle helps you unlock this help and stay safe.
