Developing Lifeguard App & VERS

The Virtual Emergency Response System (VERS) on the evan platform, is a complete system to keep people safer in low barrier housing with WIFI-enabled tablets, connected to a responder panel at the front desk of the various living units.

Lifeguard App and VERS is designed for use by high risk groups living in controlled environments such as social or temporary housing, and is currently installed at various sites throughout BC. The app is accessed hundreds of times daily by clients and we have documented 9 lives saved in the first 60 days of piloting. VERS functions as a digital harm reduction tool that allows people who use drugs to consume more safely — the intent is to reduce harm and save lives.

With permission and control by the person who is using drugs, in the event of an emergency, the application simultaneously alerts the in-house responder panel at a front desk and Emergency Responder dispatch services. At this point trained personnel can intervene with an antagonist such as Naloxone and can often revive people in the early stage of a toxicity event and then can accept or decline assistance from emergency service providers.

Woman rejoicing with man

Lifeguard App has been developed in cooperation with British Columbia Emergency Health Services, a world leader in emergency response operating at the heart of the opioid crisis. It has been extensively tested over a two-year period, in real world trials involving real people, using real drugs, in their own environments.
