Emergency callers off the map

Thought Travel Safe was only for travellers… Think again!
The following article outlines the very real and potentially fatal issue facing emergency services in Australia. The issue is that they are unable to determine your location if you make a call to emergency services from a mobile phone. This is something we made sure to address when developing Travel Safe. When you make an emergency call with Travel Safe, your location is displayed at the top of the call screen, even when your phone only has SOS service. This allows you to easily inform the emergency call centre of your location and perhaps be the difference between life and death.
