The steps that must be completed to register as a GoodSAM Responder.

  1. Download the GoodSAM Responder app on a mobile device.

  3. Once your details are verified (typically within three business days) you will receive a confirmation email.
  4. Log into the GoodSAM app to start receiving alerts!
