Emergency+ Smartphone App Could Save Your Life

Emergency Plus App

Australia’s Triple Zero Awareness Working Group has developed a smartphone app for iOS, Android and Windows devices that one day could save your life. The app:

  • provides the caller with information about when to call Triple Zero
  • provides the caller with information about who to call in various non-emergency situations, including:
    • State Emergency Service (SES) (132 500)
    • Police Assistance Line (131 444)
    • Crime Stoppers (1800 333 000)
    • Health Direct Australia (1800 022 222)
    • National Relay Service
  • assists the caller to dial the relevant number – just press the icon to call
  • displays the GPS coordinates of the phone's location that the caller can read out to the emergency operator.

As an example, you might be lost and injured in the bush with a friend? Take a screen shot of the app home page with your GPS location showing, send the friend to find mobile phone coverage where they can call for help, report their own position and your location from the screenshot to help rescue services find you both quickly. What a great idea!

The app is free of charge and available for download from iTunes, Google Play and Windows Stores. Get it on your phone now.
