Echo112: A Simple Emergency App That Can Save Lives

Already available to the Swiss for over two
years, this potentially lifesaving app is finally
catching up to US iPhone and Android users.
What does it do?
Uses a GPS signal to send your location to the
emergency service of your choice. The website sends the appropriate
party your exact coordinates, so all you have
to do is hit the big, friendly SOS button should
the need arise.
Why do we like it?
The app performs one task and performs it
well. It has all the local emergency services
already laid out for you. But depending on the
emergency, there’s a good chance you’d be
unable to calm down enough to get a good
bearing of your surrounding location.
Everything is as easy as it can possibly be, and
if mobile data connection is unavailable, the
app will automatically resort to sending out
your coordinates over SMS. Plus, it’s free.
You’ve got nothing to lose, and who knows —
it could end up saving a life.
