Our Principles

For time-sensitive emergencies like cardiac arrest, opioid overdose, and stroke, survival rates are best when help is delivered within a few minutes of the initial incident — the average ambulance response time of 8-14 minutes in the United States just isn’t fast enough.

Combining mobile technology and a growing neighborhood network of medical professionals, Ember is making medical emergency response fast, effective, and accessible for everyone.

At its core, Ember believes in:

· Customers and Responders First.

· Saving Lives.

· Reducing Costs.

· Upholding Transparency.
