CALGARY, July 23, 2019 /CNW/ - AREA is now providing each of its 10,500+ members in Alberta with a subscription to the LifeLine Response safety application, arming REALTORS® with the tools to contact emergency responders with the touch of a button.
"REALTORS® love helping their clients with the largest and most important purchases of their lives, but the job requires us to sometimes work alone in unfamiliar locations and with relative strangers," says Jennifer Gilbert, AREA Chair. "The LifeLine Response app is an important tool in improving REALTOR® safety."
A recent event in Calgary highlighted the need for further member safety support. Recent technology improvements have addressed the shortcomings of earlier safety applications.
Following extensive research, AREA is confident that LifeLine Response – a premier mobile safety application for iPhone and Android users – will provide REALTORS® with an extra layer of protection. The safety app will allow REALTORS® to alert their personal support network or summon emergency responders to their GPS location. The application also allows its users to view threat notifications in their area, increasing their situational awareness while on the job.
Member subscriptions to LifeLine Response are included within existing membership dues, at no additional cost.
