This app reads your position (x, y coordinates) from your smartphone. In case of an emergency, this position will be used to inform the appropriate rescue coordination centre.
It may be used in case of an emergency where you need medical care (by air or ground), get rescued from water or mountains or need the fire brigade.
In case of an emergency the activated app will start a telephone call with the emergency call center. At the same time the collected data is sent. This makes it possible to receive help quick and efficient.
Within the borders of Tyrol emergencies are reported to Leistelle Tirol. Outside of Tyrol you are connected with the appropriate rescue coordination centre (112).
This app is supported actively by EUSALP (EU startegy for the alpine region).
