Victoria’s WEC Inc. and Media One have released their HERO Network app on iTunes. A free goodwill utility application that allows parents or guardians to securely keep a profile of their children, including pictures and vital statistics (e.g. health conditions) online and on their Smart-phone. In seconds HERO Network allows any guardian to activate a HERO Alert if their child is lost or missing. HERO Network uses geo-location technology to send an Alert to other HEROES who are within 10 KM/6.21 Miles.
The HERO Network aims to raise awareness, and to educate both children and guardians on the topic of child safety. WEC Inc. has addressed initial bugs and has updated the current version, so update the app for the most recent version of the application if you’ve downloaded a previous version.
The HERO app is also available for Android devices.
