About Lifeguard

The founder and CEO of LifeguardOD’s focus is to build social enterprises and businesses that have social impact.  Building software to tackle social issues has been the key focus, inspired by the untimely death of one of his friends from fentanyl poisoning, the concurrent opioid addiction crisis across North America, and the critical need for solutions.

Business Goals

The goal for Lifeguard the mobile app was to build a digital safe-consumption product designed to save lives. Developed in partnership with British Columbia Emergency Health Services (BCHES), the apps goal was to  allow people who use drugs to protect themselves from overdose by enabling direct access to emergency service. It needed to be accessible to all potential users devices, and be extremely simple to operate.
