In an emergency, deaf people can use the DEC112 app to chat with an emergency call center. Text chat is an easy way for deaf people to get professional help.
In addition, health data and the current location can be sent automatically to the emergency call center. This enables very efficient help.
In Austria you can use it to access the following services:
Fire brigade (emergency call 122)
Police (emergency number 133)
Rescue (emergency call 144)
Mountain rescue (emergency call 140)
Euro emergency number (emergency number 112)
