The Smartphone App, Cell 411, for emergencies. Interesting app, specially for the Elderly, disabled and kids

The smartphone app will allow you to create private or public groups in your geographic area and use them as a method to dispatch help in case of emergencies. You can notify your friends when you get a flat tire, get pulled over, have a medical issue or when police are harassing you. You can even stream live video to all your friends and avoid the possibility of the video being deleted by police or evidence being destroyed by a malicious individual.
Once requesting help, your friends will receive your GPS coordinates and turn-by-turn directions to your exact locations; you will be notified of an ETA and how far your friends are.
There is even a “patrol mode” available which even allows you to send what are called “global alerts” meaning that anyone using the app in your area will receive notifications and be able to come and help, should they feel like a Good Samaritan that day.
The best thing about this app is that it is completely free, and the option of allowing users to create “public groups” that anyone could join is very powerful and offers communities the option to self-police. Here are some other examples of the fantastic possibilities this app offers:
For example, a neighborhood watch group of neighbors could create a group and use the app to notify each other in case of emergencies.
  • Elderly people could use the app to notify all their family members if they are in a particular need.
  • Activists observing police activity or police abuse could notify all activists in an area and stream video to all their friends.
  • Volunteer fire fighter departments could encourage their communities to use the app as a free “dispatch” option.
  • School children could send alerts if they are being bullied or abused in school.
  • Family members could send alerts when vehicles break down and need urgent help.
There are countless other possibilities for this app, and the creators are clearly aiming the app at users who desire to be self-reliant and not depend on government services and government employees to respond to emergencies.
