“We are very proud to accept this award from Subsentio,” said Jude
O’Sullivan, Chief Customer Officer of Carolina West Wireless. “Thanks to
the remarkable technologies we host, a very worrisome incident for the
boys and their families was brought to a safe and happy conclusion.”

“This event can help boost awareness of how systems designed to
apprehend criminals and terrorists are equally important to the work of
first responders,” said Steve Bock, President and CEO of Subsentio. “Not
for the first time, advanced technology saved lives.”

The rescue operation unfolded on the afternoon of March 3, 2019. While
hiking on the state park’s “Mountains to the Sea Trail,” the two boys
went off trail, lost their way and dialed 911 on their smartphone for
help. Carolina West went into action, deploying GPS location and radio
frequency (RF) triangulation to determine the youth’s location,
precisely position rescuers in a 14,351-acre state park, and find the
teens before night fell and temperatures plunged. When the lost boys
emerged from the woods, the rescue team was there to meet them.
