Emergency Web & App Tools and Resources

A mobile device app called EchoSOS pioneered in Switzerland that calls emergency 112 services from your smartphone anywhere in the world with a single touch activation and also TRASMITS your GPS based location to emergency services automatically. Best of all, it does NOT require data services to be active in your area during an emergency, as it can transmit the signal via SMS.

Listen to Dr. Michelle Wright, a British-trained doctor and Medical Director of HealthFirst, talk about the app.
