Alerts the Rega Operations Centre with a swipe of your finger and automatically transmits your position coordinates.

The Rega app is free of charge and comprises the following features:

• Alerts Rega’s Operation Centre from within Switzerland or abroad – your current location is automatically transmitted when you raise the alarm.
• Shares your position coordinates with Rega, even when the app is in the background – so that you can be found more quickly in an emergency.
• Additional features for Rega patrons: shares your position with friends or allows your activities to be monitored – for example, if you are out and about on your own.
• Checks via a test alarm whether the app is configured correctly and an alarm can be initiated if necessary.
• Displays your current position on the map and provides detailed map information from Swisstopo.
• Records useful information that could be of help to the Rega Operations Centre in the event of an emergency.
• Tells you what action you should take if you suffer a medical emergency in Switzerland or abroad.
• Available in four languages (German, English, French, Italian).

Important remarks:
• Place the Rega app icon on the first page of your mobile phone screen for instant access.
• After installing the Rega app for the first time, open the application, accept the Terms of Use, and enter your basic personal data (mobile phone number, first name, family name, etc.). This will save time if you need to raise the alarm.
• Alarm feature: Once the data has been successfully transmitted, the Rega Operations Centre will automatically be contacted. Only after you have spoken to the Operations Centre by phone can a rescue be initiated.
• Enable the Location Services feature in your phone settings.
• The Location Services feature will only work if the appropriate signal can be received (GPS, Wi-Fi, mobile phone network).
• Telephone calls cannot be made without a SIM card.
• If the SIM card is blocked, it is only possible to call the European emergency number 112.
• When raising the alarm, always do so outside in the open air (better signal reception).
• If possible, when raising the alarm, shield the phone microphone from the wind.
