Trek Medics International is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve emergency medical systems in communities with limited access to emergency care and transport. Since our founding, Trek Medics has emerged as one of the only organizations focused on emergency medical systems development in low- and middle-income countries. Our work is accomplished primarily through our innovative Beacon software, an emergency medical dispatching platform designed specifically for communities that can’t afford advanced “911” technologies.
