This ‘call for help’ app was created by the Daniel Morcombe Foundation to keep kids safe, but it can assist others in personal emergency situations.
Pressing the ‘PUSH FOR HELP’ button sounds a foghorn-like alarm, and sends a text message to two emergency contacts. If location permissions are enabled the Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates will be included in the text.
The ‘Notes’ page assists the user to capture details of suspicious vehicles such as vehicle registration, make, colour, shape, and the number and gender of occupants. The ‘Notes’ page provides options to send the note to emergency contacts or to save the note for later.
The ‘Help Numbers’ page lists links to emergency services nationwide, such as triple ‘000’, Crime Stoppers, Kids Helpline, Lifeline and National Missing Persons.
