How does the Rescue app work?
The Rescue application is a perfect tool for holidays on the water or in the mountains. It works flawlessly and receives very positive opinions, both among organized tour guides and holidaymakers who value safe tourism all year round. The Ratunek application, available since 2014, is the only application approved and included in the accident notification system, used by voluntary rescue services.
When the user calls for help, it sends the position of the injured person to rescuers with an accuracy of 3 meters. Let us remember that in times of danger and high stress levels, time is of the essence, so when calling for help, the application automatically dials the integrated rescue number, in the mountains 601 100 300 or by the water 601 100 100.
The Rescue application is free and very easy to use, tested on various user groups. It is distinguished by clear graphics and very easy navigation. The application is connected to Rescue Coordination Centers throughout Poland. In the mountains (TOPR, GOPR) or by the water (WOPR, MOPR). After turning on GPS and pressing the blue cross icon three times, the application will automatically dial the emergency number (in the mountains 601 100 300 or by the water 601 100 100), with which it is integrated. Already during the conversation with the rescuer (in Android) or immediately after it (in Windows, iOS), emergency services receive an SMS with information about your location.
Thanks to this, rescuers know where to look for you, even if you cannot determine your location yourself. The application also sends them messages about your battery and provides information about your current health condition, which you have previously completed in your medical booklet. All this affects the quick action of rescuers in crisis situations.
Remember, the Rescue application is about protecting you and your loved ones. Download it today and enjoy your holiday time.
