In a response to an emergency, timely and accurate information being passed onto the emergency services is very important and could save lives, which is why The Emergency Plus app (also known as the Emergency+ app) can be downloaded to your mobile phone and can help you pass this information on the right way.  Emergency Plus can be used on iPhones and on Android devices.

We’ve detailed just some of the reasons you should use the Emergency Plus App in an Emergency.

  1. Emergency Plus gives you Swift Access to Triple Zero (000), and other Emergency Numbers at the Press of a Button

In critical situations, every second counts. The Emergency + app equips you with a powerful tool to quickly call Triple Zero (000) for Police, Fire or Ambulance as well as for SES.  With just a few taps, you can connect to emergency services, ensuring timely assistance when it matters most.

  1. Accurate Location Communication

When you’re in distress, conveying your precise location to emergency call-takers is vital. The app utilises GPS functionality built into your smartphone. It assists you in providing critical location details required to mobilise emergency services. Whether you’re lost in an unfamiliar area or facing an urgent situation, the app ensures that responders can find you swiftly.

  1. What3words Integration with Emergency Plus

The app now includes what3words functionality, allowing you to describe your location with just three words. Emergencies can occur in places that are sometimes hard to pinpoint using traditional street addresses, landmarks or GPS coordinates. With what3words, you can provide a unique three-word identifier for any 3-square-meter area on Earth. It’s a quick and simple way to communicate your exact location, especially when words fail.

  1. CPR Videos and Lifesaving Skills

In addition to emergency calls, the app offers CPR videos to equip you with lifesaving skills. When faced with a medical crisis, having basic knowledge of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) can make a significant difference. The app provides you with video instructions on performing CPR to empower you to act effectively while waiting for professional help.

  1. The Emergency Plus app is available Across Australia

Whether you’re in bustling cities or remote areas, the Emergency+ app works across Australia, wherever you have a mobile service signal. It’s a vital Government initiative aimed at improving public safety and enhancing emergency service response times. Download it from the APP Store or Google Play Store to be prepared for any unforeseen situation.

Remember, the Emergency Plus app isn’t just an app—it’s a lifeline. Install it today and be ready to protect yourself and others when emergencies strike.  It is another tool in your arsenal for effective emergency response.
