IDme is an application available for use in emergencies. When the panic button is activated, IDme uses your phone’s GPS in order to determine your location. In the event that no GPS location is available, the application will plot your location via your networks cell phone towers.
Your panic alert, location information and cell phone number are routed to the ER 24 EMS contact centre. A contact centre co-ordinator will attempt to reach you telephonically, determine the nature of the emergency and send out the appropriate response unit.
