Mountain Rescue Tirol Emergency App

The Mountain Rescue Tirol Emergency Smartphone App operated by the Tirol Control Centre is a new alternative method for reporting emergencies in alpine terrain. The (almost) exact localisation of the victim by means of an integrated GPS module significantly reduces the time period between alerting emergency services and the actual rescue. At the same time, the telephone connection allows the emergency situation to be clarified and provides the person concerned with verbal assistance on how to deal with the emergency. The Mountain Rescue Tirol Emergency App is therefore a valuable addition to the official alpine emergency number 140 and, under certain circumstances, can even save lives.
