Following the announcement of our partnership, EENA and Waze are happy to announce that four (4) organisations have been selected to join the pilot test programme and evaluate the impact of Waze crowdsourced data on emergency response.

Congratulations to:

  • Notruf Niederösterreich (NNO), emergency medical service, Austria
  • AREU, 112 service and emergency medical service, Italy
  • SDIS 13, fire brigade, France
  • SDIS 86, fire brigade, France

“This partnership between Waze and EENA is in the public interest. The aim is to allow emergency services to respond more quickly to accident sites and thereby assist in their life-saving efforts. We are therefore pleased to see that many organisations have applied to join the pilot and we look forward to seeing the first results later this year.”said Adam Fried, Global Partnerships at Waze.

Alexis Gizikis, EENA Projects Manager added that “The sites are a great mix of services, incidents managed, populations served, and geographic characteristics. Tests in these different settings will allow us to draw better conclusions on the use of anonymous crowdsourced Waze data in emergency management and first response.”

The pilot sites are going to work with Waze and EENA throughout the project, expected to end November 2017. The project results, including challenges, opportunities and future recommendations, will be shared after the completion of the project with all interested parties.
