About this app

Save the app that could save your life – Emergency Plus.
In an emergency, time and location accuracy are critical. By downloading the ‘Emergency +’ app, you’ll equip yourself with a powerful tool that will help you call Triple Zero (000) quickly, and allow you to accurately communicate your location to emergency call-takers.
‘Emergency +’ is a national app developed by Australia’s emergency services and their government industry partners, helping people to call the right number at the right time, anywhere in Australia. Emergency + also includes SES and Police Assistance Line numbers as options, so non-emergency calls are made to the most appropriate number.
When calling Triple Zero (000), remember to stay focused, stay relevant and stay on the line. Before you call ask yourself:
* Is someone seriously injured or in need of urgent medical help?
* Is your life or property being threatened?
* Have you just witnessed a serious accident or crime?
If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of these questions, call Triple Zero (000). Triple Zero (000) calls are free.
The app uses a mobile phone’s GPS functionality and what3words, so callers can provide emergency call-takers with their location information as determined by their smart phone.
With what3words available within the Emergency+ app, Triple Zero (000) callers can confirm their exact location quickly and accurately.
what3words has divided the world into 3m squares and given each one a unique three word identifier. Addressing using what3words works offline - ideal when you have no data coverage or are in a remote location.

Important – if there is no mobile coverage on any network, you will not be able to reach the Emergency Call Service via a mobile telephone​​.

Perfect app for its purpose: something to contact help in the event of an emergency. No frills; it opens up quickly and silently every single time, and provides location data as soon as possible, including GPS coordinates and address. Important contacts are listed clearly, there are no little buttons or menus to mess around with. The design of the app is clean and simple. The designers of this app understand what needs it must fulfill. A must have, in case of emergencies.

App still works on my Android, W3W is a great introduction. However, when increasing the text size, it reaches a point where it won't display in the screen properly, as there's no ability to scroll down - yet lots of wasted up the top. Biggest complaint of the update is the icon change - more modern yes, but isn't obvious at all like the original that it's an emergency app. Even the new icon being red would be a better start. It seems to be a common piece of feedback from a lot of users
