Emergency App by Tyrolean mountain rescue

In 2012, the Leitstelle Tirol has, together with Tyrol mine rescue, developed the “Notfall App Bergrettung Tirol operated by Leitstelle Tirol GmbH” specifically for emergencies in the Alpine regions of the Tyrol. The app can only be used in the Tyrol and is available free of charge. In an acute situation, it makes it possible for the user, at the touch of a button, to transmit his or her own location (using GPS coordinates) to the Leitstelle Tirol, while a telephone connection between them is simultaneously established. As a consequence of this, the Leitstelle Tirol alerts and dispatches the necessary emergency personnel.
