Echo112 - pocket lifesaver app for smartphones

I just wanted to mention this app for smartphones (apple and androids).

Echo112 is a free lifesaving smartphone app that sends your location to local emergency services, worldwide.

features
Display of nearby address and coordinates
  • Test function
  • No data? No problem: your location is sent by SMS
  • Field tested by Swiss Emergency services for the last two years, now available worldwide
Swisstransplant (which is the organization for the organ donors in Switzerland) has added a donor card to this app, and you can also indicate your medical need.

So I think it's something useful to have.

Re: Echo112 - pocket lifesaver app for smartphones

Had the *opportunity* to use this app this morning as an old lady fell of the stairs in front of me.

As she was unconscious and bleeding from the head I took my smartphone and then, forgot what number to call.

Hopefully that app was there....

Ambulance was there 10 minutes after.
