Emergency + Smart phone app - call the right emergency service to the right location

More than 66 per cent of callers to emergency numbers are from mobile phones. Often, the callers don't know their exact location or the correct number they should call.

The Emergency+ app was developed by Fire & Rescue NSW and the Triple Zero Awareness Working Group (TZAWG); a national body that represents emergency call-taking agencies and their government and industry partners throughout Australia.

The Emergency+ app provides users with the ability to directly connect to the most appropriate emergency service.
