THE 911 CRISIS IS GETTING WORSE. ARE YOU PREPARED?

LEARN HOW YOU CAN PROTECT YOURSELF
WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WHEN YOU CAN'T GET THROUGH?
THIS COULD HAPPEN TO YOU
Imagine that you're at work/school and suddenly, an active-shooter appears out of nowhere and starts shooting. You run and hide under a table. Then, you grab your smartphone and you call 911. But when a dispatcher answers, you're immediately put on hold. "Now what?" you ask yourself as panic sets in. You try to call back but this time, you hear a busy signal. Why? Many just like you are trying to call 911 at the same time causing a 911 system meltdown. This "can't-get-through" problem happens all too often, putting people and responders in danger. Why does this keep happening, you ask?
911 DISPATCHER SHORTAGES
Because of a shortage of dispatchers, many 911 centers are grossly understaffed which is one of the reasons this "can't-get through" problem keeps getting worse. Low pay, long hours, high stress, threats from callers and a complicated work environment make being a dispatcher unattractive in a tight labor market where jobs are plentiful. TAKE THE 911 TEST ABOVE TO SEE HOW MANY DISPATCHERS ARE ON DUTY IN YOUR AREA RIGHT NOW.
911 SYSTEM FAILURES
The existing 911 system often fails. The E911 system "upgrade" that is supposed to fix these problems is only making matters worse by adding more layers of complication that slows dispatchers down even more. Text-to-911 is also problematic because of how it further slows down dispatchers, doesn't provide location information, is subject to delivery delays by the cell carriers and isn't directly accessible by first responders in the field--too many issues!
911 FUNDING PROBLEMS
Most 911 centers are operating in the red and any promised funding usually gets "diverted" to fill other budget shortfalls. Because of the massive unfunded pension-obligation problem that most municipalities have, experts agree that 911 funding shortfalls will only get worse going forward since these budget dollars are being used for pensions instead.

StreamQuik offers a unique 911 solution called QuikHelp 911 that solves this "can't-get-through" problem and others by making it easy to send an alert for help to security, 911 AND to first responders at the same time without having to call them AND without having to download a special app.
ACTUAL INCIDENT EXPERIENCE
PLAY THE VIDEO ABOVE
On August 3, 2019, a mass-shooting occurred at a Walmart store in El Paso, Texas where 22 people were killed. During this time, many tried to call 911 but couldn't get through, including the woman depicted in the video above. She was trapped under a table with the gunman nearby with no way to get help. Please play the video above to appreciate the seriousness of this issue, and then imagine this woman being you.
STUCK WITH NO HELP COMING
If you suddenly find yourself in a situation like the one shown in the video above, texting a friend to get them to call police for you wouldn't do any good because your friend may not be able to get through either. Using Text-to-911 wouldn't help because of text delivery delays and because you may not know where you are, making your text message useless to first responders. Calling police non-emergency numbers wouldn't help either because these calls are usually answered by the dispatchers you were trying to reach originally who ignore calls on these non-priority lines during emergencies. When every second counts, these delays could cost you your life! Reaching out via social media is just as useless.
YOU DESERVE BETTER!
Every month your phone bill arrives, you're being billed for 911 service that many are not getting for the reasons cited herein and this tax is on the rise. This is totally unacceptable!
