In an emergency, time and location accuracy are critical. By downloading the free Emergency Plus 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.
Developed by Australia’s Emergency Services, and their government industry partners, it takes the stress out of finding number or keypads to type numbers. The app allows anyone to access emergency numbers very easily.
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, use the Emergency Plus app to call Triple Zero (000). Triple Zero (000) calls are free.
All you have to do is to open the app and press a button for the service you require and the app automatically sends your location through using your mobile phone’s GPS functionality and what3words (we’ll post more on what3 words shortly).
This app can make a stressful situation easier.
