Core News Facts

  • HERO is a new mobile network for Iphone and Android devices that allows parents or guardians to activate an alert if their child is lost or goes missing.
  • Parents create a secure profile of their child including picture and vital statistics, and upload it online and on their smart phone. All information is protected through a combination of secure connections, encrypted file names and other network security forms.
  • If a child goes missing, HERO uses geo-location technology to send an alert to other HEROES (subscribers) within a 10 km radius, alerting hundreds and even thousands of HEROES in the immediate vicinity. At any time, users can also call 911.
  • HEROES can reply to an alert with relevant information and once the missing child is located, the alert is deactivated.
  • The HERO Network is about parents helping parents, and communities uniting to help keep children safe.
  • The HERO app is available on Apple Itunes and Goggle Play Stores under « getheroapp » for free. To upload a secure child profile, there is a onetime fee of $3.99 to purchase the in-app Guardian download.
