Garmin announces 10,000 inReach® SOS Incidents
Since 2011, Garmin inReach® satellite technology has helped individuals stay in touch globally, send and receive messages outside of cellphone service, navigate routes, track and share journeys and, when necessary, trigger an interactive SOS message to Garmin Response, the 24/7 staffed global emergency response coordination center. More than 10,000 individuals’ lives have been changed from the help they received after triggering an SOS message on their inReach device.
In the event of an emergency, an interactive SOS message can be sent to the 24/7 staffed Garmin Response Center. The trained staff is available to respond to messages, track devices and coordinate with emergency services or others to provide assistance, giving individuals peace of mind in the scariest of situations. Garmin Response stays in touch with individuals until help arrives or until they no longer require assistance.
