What the App offers you:

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.
