VALENCIA, CA—When a medical emergency occurs, every second counts. If this is a life or death situation, the outcome may hinge on how quickly your ambulance can reach its destination.

Information becomes critical. Which EMS unit should respond? What is the fastest route? Are there traffic jams? Road closures? How accessible is the emergency site? Where is the closest ER? What's the estimated time of arrival?

That's why healthcare facilities and private services are increasingly relying on LiveViewGPS Live Trac GPS vehicle tracking systems as their newest weapon in saving lives.

The Live Trac GPS system guides your ambulances as efficiently as possible. By providing real-time updates about an ambulance's exact location, the system makes it possible for you to save lives and save money.

Monitoring EMS Locations
LiveViewGPS' best-selling G-5 Vehicle Tracker operates on the company's new Live Trac Platform, a next-generation, real-time vehicle tracking system offering 1-, 5- and 10-second vehicle tracking capabilities on highly sensitive receivers. Like other Live Trac units, it works in environments where other GPS units fail.

The Live Trac GPS Platform features reliable 99.9% server uptime and requires no software to install. System updates are free, and live support is built into the platform. Users log on via their web-enabled computer or mobile device and, once connected, can track multiple vehicles in real time on a high-resolution satellite map, set geofencing (zones), find addresses, see aerial or road map views, and see historical data up to 90 days. A personal dashboard allows users to set and manage mapping, reporting and alert features to meet business or personal needs.

This system offers several benefits that can improve the services you offer your clients.

For example, you can pinpoint every vehicle to determine which EMS team is closest to the emergency. You can also give real-time, turn-by-turn directions to ambulance drivers to guide them along the fastest routes while avoiding heavy traffic and accidents.

LiveViewGPS vehicle tracking also ensures your EMS teams stay on task at all times. This can significantly help you keep accurate records about travel times, useful routes and the number of employees you need in the field during high-volume periods. Now you can:

GPS Reports for Effective Business Decisions
As a business offering EMS capabilities, you are under constant pressure to cut costs whenever possible without negatively affecting the services you offer. Live Trac GPS reports make it easier to make these important business decisions.

With LiveViewGPS software, you no longer rely on guesswork or approximations. Instead, you get precise data such as travel times and distances, stops and starts, route alerts, excessive idling and more that assist you in possibly lowering costs while improving customer service.

Having the right medical equipment can save someone's life, whether it's portable defibrillators, EKG monitors or X-ray machines. Now a LiveViewGPS Live Trac Vehicle Trackers can be added as another life saver.
