Reducing incident response times
Magen David Adom, Israel

Magen David Adom (MDA), Israel’s national emergency authority, integrated Waze data into its live geographic information system (GIS). MDA flagged Waze reported accidents and dispatched nearby ambulances, reducing incident notification and response times.

Impact:

  • During a 1-month pilot, MDA dispatched ambulances to 300 car accidents reported through Waze; these alerts arrived on average 10-15% faster than through other equivalent channels.
