The Emergency App Provides GPS Coordinates

The Emergency+ app is a free app developed by Australia’s emergency services and their Government and industry partners.
The app uses GPS functionality built into smart phones to help a Triple Zero (000) caller provide critical location details required to mobilise emergency services.
Please note: If you have no internet, coverage you may be able to still make an emergency call and tell the operator your location.

No internet required! The GPS coordinates may need to be refreshed – just take a few steps to enable your phone to do this!
