First responders at a crash scene can be the difference between life and death for a critically injured person, but the time it takes to arrive can delay medical care. OnStar’s specially trained Emergency Advisors can help bridge that gap with a service called First Assist.
First Assist allows OnStar Emergency Advisors to provide immediate advice and guidance to Corry, PA and Northwestern Pennsylvania victims in distress while they wait for first responders to arrive. These Advisors are certified by the National Academies of Emergency Dispatch (NAED) to provide Emergency Medical Dispatch (EMD) to people in need.
“OnStar is at the forefront of emergency services, as they have the only advisors in the automotive space who are EMD certified,” said Robert Crotty, VP for Crotty Chevrolet Buick. “This cuts down the delay of getting critical help to victims, which is something that can really provide drivers in our area peace of mind in emergencies.”
