Emergency+


Save the app that could save your life.

‘Emergency +’ is a national app developed by Australia's emergency services and their Government and industry partners, helping people to call the right number at the right time, anywhere in Australia. The app uses a mobile phone's GPS functionality so callers can provide emergency call-takers with their location information as determined by their smart phone. ‘Emergency+’ also includes SES and Police Assistance Line numbers as options, so non-emergency calls are made to the most appropriate number.

When calling Triple Zero (000), remember to stay focused, stay relevant, and stay on the line. Before you call, ask yourself:

* Is someone seriously injured or in need of urgent medical help?
* Is your life or property being threatened?
* Have you just witnessed a serious accident or crime?

If you answered 'Yes' to any of these questions, call Triple Zero (000). Triple Zero calls are free.

Recent changes:
Localisation features now include Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese and Japanese languages. GPS optimisations to save battery life when suspending the app.

Works great on my phone - but why can't I install it on my Galaxy Tab4? I use the tablet mounted in a truck for navigation and maps and as the car phone, so it's a shame I can't use this very useful app.

Take 5 I read about the app in the Take 5 magazine and downloaded it straight away. I have also told my daughters 20 & 18 to download it as well

Good idea, but improvements are needed! Address was close, but wrong (only has to be out by one house number, to end badly!). Given the serious nature of this app, close enough, isn't good enough- people's lives are at stake! If Google earth can get my address right, surely this app should be able to, as well!

On an Xiaomi Redmi Note 1S, and on some other phones which are imported, Emergency+ isn't able to translate the GPS coordinates into a street address. The GPS coordinates are fast and accurate (within 10m or so), but the address part of the front screen is not filled in. Perhaps there is some API call that is required for it to work that is not available? On the map screen, it continues to say "(Address updated x seconds ago)", but only displays the latitude and long coordiates.
