Emergency + app

This app was suggested as something everyone with a smart phone should have in the “How to” page Using Your Mobile Phone to Report an Emergency.
This is backed up by the ABC news report “Emergency app helped rescuers locate couple lost in bushland near Canberra” at http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-07-27/emergency-app-helped-rescuers-locate-couple-lost-in-bushland/6649464 which states:-

“An emergency app has helped rescuers locate a couple lost in bushland south of Canberra.

During the search, the couple used the Emergency + application on their phone to allow emergency services to pinpoint their exact location.

They were found safe and well in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Sergeant Brad Hughes said the app could prove to be a life saver for anyone who finds themselves in an emergency situation in a remote area.”
