In some places, Namola alerts go directly to officers. In other places, our control room will get hold of 10111, the fire station, EMS, traffic, etc. on the user’s behalf, depending on the need. In all cases, Namola has a dedicated command centre operator assigned to each incident who makes sure the user gets the assistance they need from the relevant authority and who is there for the user every step of the way.
Having said that, Namola is not a magic bullet that fixes all the myriad challenges with public emergency services in our country. That is precisely why we’ve developed Namola Watch. In many cases, communities are doing a great job putting structures in place to keep their communities safe and work around the challenges with e.g. SAPS not having adequate resources to deal with every incident as efficiently and speedily as we’d all like.
We’re also exploring ways to tie private armed response into our network, for those who want additional peace of mind.
