  • Project Story

Through a subsidiary Road Emergency Doctor Services (REDs), we provide post-crash emergency response on Kenyan Road networks.
We leverage on modern technology for effective and efficient service delivery, we operate a central integrated web and mobile based emergency response system (REDS.ER) a platform that receives
emergency alerts, deploys, coordinate, monitors and control operations.

Paramedics, Police, Hospitals and emergency service providers are as close to road situations in real time, through the REDS.ER platform to be able to effectively manage road emergencies.
Road Emergency Doctor Services is working in close partnership with The Kenya Police, NTSA, Vision 2030, Ministry of Health, Emergency response service providers, and other stakeholders to
reduce the number of post-crash deaths in Kenya. The company’s business model provides a unique, sustainable and holistic approach towards post-crash accident emergency response through modern technology.

Operations of the company are anchored on four components:

  • A technical, geo-tracking, web and mobile-based integrated system for operations
  • A control centre
  • Emergency care centres
  • Trauma centres & ambulance services


The company will offer four services:

  • Emergency Response motorcycles services
  • Road Emergency paramedics services
  • General emergency and Modern ER Technology consultancy
  • Emergency Response training services

Under the proposed capacity, the company will employ 672 employees directly and impact over 220 supplies spread across different counties in Kenya. This way, Nurse in Hand Emergency Response can integrate positive contribution to communities with final rewards to its investors. To establish, and finance operations of Emergency Care Centers along the Northern Corridor Transit Route will require a total of KES 16.5 Million per centre (about $165,000)
