GUARDIUM provides an economic framework for distributed emergency response to the four billion people worldwide without government sponsored emergency response.

Project stage

Only a whitepaper

Detailed description

Guardium and Guardian Circle togther open the emergency response grid to vetted citizens, private response and compatible devices for the very first time.

Providing an economic framework on our global distributed emergency response network; Guardium brings first responders to the 4 billion people on the planet without government sponsored emergency response.

Beyond providing crucial emergency response the platform creates employment opportunities for responders and innovators that integrate with the Guardium ecosystem.

Problem

Problems of Centralization: 

Proximity of help
Emergency services are dispatched through a central switchboard, and local resources are routed to the scene of the emergency. Emergency resources may have a long distance to travel, especially for people in remote areas. In many emergencies including sudden medical crisis or violent crime, this is an unacceptable time delay. 

Location of Emergency
Emergency responders need a detailed explanation of the location of the emergency, in many cases this location is not automatically available through the device GPS when calling a traditional 9-1-1 service.

Scalability
Centralization reduces scalability. In disasters such as recent hurricanes Irma and Harvey, emergency response was swamped with calls and those calling would often be faced with a busy signal. During hurricane Irma, CNN announced that 9-1-1 calls would simply go unanswered in Florida for the duration of the storm. The inherent centralization of current emergency response limits scalability. 

Distribution
Four billion people on earth have no access to 9-1-1 services. 

Knowledge of responder
In many cases, first responders are entering into situations where their knowledge may be extremely limited. This may limit their ability to provide appropriate care. 

User Interface
Typically emergency response is handled through a 9-1-1 phone call. In cases where the person cannot speak (for example if they are having a stroke), they will be unable to summon help. For those conditions where the person in crisis has foreknowledge of a possible problem (a person on a heart pacemaker, or someone with life threatening allergies, etc), creating a “panic button” that doesn’t require a detailed phone conversation can be a life saver.

Solution

This problem requires both a new class of Global Public Utility and a new class of Protocol-Based Decentralized Organization to govern, facilitate and update this service. Draft specification of the protocol is under development. The protocol governs the following areas: 

Identity
How users and providers identify themselves consistently and reliably on the network. This protocol will need to offer a form of secure identity to prevent spoofing, as trust in the network depends on stable identities with reputation. 

Reputation
How entities in the network establish reputation including response.

Logging, Auditing and Incident reporting
How incidents are reported in an immutable distributed ledger, and how responses to incidents and outcomes are also reported.

Compensation
Whether established as part of a pre-ordained smart contract or post-facto arrangement, the process of compensation will likely require some form of adjudication, ideally decentralized. 

Alerting
Based on an emergency call, the protocol will have to determine which possible respondents are alerted based on trust, skills needed, pre-established relationships, user preferences, proximity and a variety of other factors. 

Contracts
Establishment of smart contracts for security.

Liability
The network will have to present regional variations in order to handle variability in the legal exposure to respondents and to protect the network itself. 

Hardware API
Interfaces for many different devices that can serve as interfaces to the network.
