Save the app that could save your life.
‘Emergency +’ is a national app developed by Australia's emergency services and their Government and industry partners, helping people to call the right number at the right time, anywhere in Australia. The app uses a mobile phone's GPS functionality so callers can provide emergency call-takers with their location information as determined by their smart phone. ‘Emergency+’ also includes SES and Police Assistance Line numbers as options, so non-emergency calls are made to the most appropriate number.
When calling Triple Zero (000), remember to stay focused, stay relevant, and stay on the line. Before you call, ask yourself:
* Is someone seriously injured or in need of urgent medical help?
* Is your life or property being threatened?
* Have you just witnessed a serious accident or crime?
If you answered 'Yes' to any of these questions, call Triple Zero (000). Triple Zero calls are free.
Updates to allow users to increase TEXT size on GPS numbers to be more easily read.

Saved my live!
On last Friday night I suffered a crashing stroke. I was out on the bathroom tiles and couldn't talk, thankfully my wife was right there. She was a little flustered (understandable) and could not remember the number to call. She had this app on her phone and switch straight to the app and called the emergency number directly, also read the home address straight from the app screen.
I apologize if my words are mixed up, but I'm still recovering from the stroke.
I owe my wife for her recognition of what was happening and straight through to the help needed.
Feedback for developer team
* Valuable app which works well.
* No clear channel provided to give feedback to app developer team - 000 website ‘contact us for feedback’ page sends you off to a myriad of pages on Department of Home Affairs website :(
* Feedback on behalf of a visually impaired member of community: the location details may not be very easy for some people to see.
* Perhaps a future release possibly include an accessibility option whereby the user could press a button for the location details to be read out by the phone? [Google maps is able to read out directions even when the phone is on a call, so such a feature may be possible(?).]
Better safe than lost
Great concept guys. We are frequent interstate holiday drivers and have come upon not so nice truck drivers harassing motorists in certain parts between rural NSW and VIC. Knowing where I am exactly can help in reporting trucks or accidents! I will be recommending this to friends and family.
