Mankato Public Safety has partnered with Vitals™ Aware Services
Mankato Public Safety has partnered with Vitals Aware Services, a subscription-based app designed to help first responders properly interact with vulnerable adults. The Vitals app allows vulnerable adults or their caregivers to create personalized profiles with medical information, behavior triggers, and critical needs.
When a person wearing a Vitals Bluetooth device comes within 80-feet of a first responder, that responder will be notified through a smartphone about that person’s needs and how to best interact with them. Profiles are shared in real-time – and only temporarily – with police, first responders, and 911 dispatchers.
Information added to the app is determined by the individual and may include:
• medical information
• critical needs
• behavior triggers
• de-escalation techniques
• code words or a calming message from you
“The more information we get when first working with the public, the more effective we can be in providing the best service or response,” says Director of Public Safety Amy Vokal. “The app will provide first responders another resource to help interact with individuals who need assistance when communicating their unique needs.”
Profile information is temporarily shared with only authorized public safety, first responders, and 911 dispatchers.
Monthly or annual fees apply based on subscription level.
How does it work?
Individuals and caregivers who subscribe to Vitals™ create a profile with critical information about the vulnerable person. The information provided is 100% voluntary and is only seen by authorized first responders and 911 dispatchers.
When the vulnerable person wears or carries a Vitals™ Bluetooth device and is close enough to interact with a first responder, the officer will get a notification on their smartphone about the person’s needs and how to best interact with them. It gives first responders a chance to make a positive and helpful connection.
