Improvements to the !Emergency! App

!Emergency! was made as a simple iPhone app to dial the emergency services of whichever country you’re in. Wherever you are in the world, the app will use your GPS signal to locate you and then dial the appropriate number for that country.

Our iPhone app still does this just as effectively as ever, but now does even more. Now you can see the location of your nearest embassy, should you need travel advice or anything similar.

You can also find the location of your nearest hospital or clinic. This could be particularly useful if your situation is less of an immediate emergency, or, even worse, if there are no ambulances available and you need to make your own way to medical treatment.

!Emergency! is still the same great app, but now does even more: wherever you are, find your nearest embassy, hospital or clinic; and if you need to, dial the emergency services.

Press Release

Announcing the launch of a beautifully simple, and potentially lifesaving, app for the iPhone. !Emergency! uses your phone’s location data to dial the emergency services contact number for the country that you are in.

Did you know there are hundreds of different emergency services telephone numbers across the world, and many countries have different numbers for Police, Medical or Fire departments? In some European countries it’s 112, in Australia it’s 000, in New Zealand 111, 171 in Venezuela, and it could be 197, 190 or 198 in Tunisia, depending on your emergency.

Whether you’re away on business, or holidaying, if you travel a lot then this app is for you.

11.7 million 911 calls are received daily in the US alone. It’s bad enough if this happens to you, but if it happens in a country where you don’t know the number, this could be disastrous.

On launching the application, it will determine your location, selecting from a database of hundreds of countries. It will then ask for confirmation, before dialling the correct emergency telephone number.

Just install, and the app takes care of the rest. With most similar apps you need to program in the emergency number for your country, but not !Emergency!. It comes preloaded with a huge database of numbers from around the world. So where those other apps become useless, !Emergency! comes into its own.

Wherever you are, you’re safe with !Emergency!. One thing can be sure: you will never regret it installing it.

iPhone App Launched!

We are delighted and excited to announce the official launch of !Emergency!, a potentially lifesaving iPone app.

This app uses your phone’s location data to call the Emergency Services for the country that you are in, should you find yourself in an emergency situation.

If you travel a lot, but do not always have time to find out the important numbers of the country you are in, then this app is for you.

When you launch !Emergency!, it uses your iPhone’s location data, together with a specially assembled database of emergency telephone numbers, to call the correct number for the country you are in. We have a huge database of countries from across the world.

We’ve all been there: travelling in a country, maybe for just short time, without knowing all the local travel info. Trouble is, you don’t always know when you might be in an emergency situation.

Anything can happen: medical, fire or legal emergency – you never know what might strike. And just one number could mean the difference between life and death. But these numbers can be quite different from one country to the next. It may be 911 in the United States, 999 in the United Kingdom, but did you know you should dial 111 for the Emergency Services in New Zealand? Do you know the emergency telephone number in Mexico, Australia or Germany?

Just install !Emergency! on your iPhone, and the app does the rest. It will automatically detect what country you are in, and dial the correct number should you need it.

Just launch the app, and !Emergency! will take care of the rest.

There’s one thing you can be sure of: You will never regret it.
