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.

Not perfect but is the only app everyone should have Everyone should have this, but developers are unresponsive. Badly needs two improvements: 1. The GPS coordinates and address need to be in a larger font so those with aging eyesight can read it. 2. Should be able to SMS GPS coordinates and address to my own emergency contacts. Reason is simple: poor signal sometimes prevents voice calls but SMS gets through.
