An EMS mobile app
The Záchranka mobile app is an easy way to contact the Emergency Medical Services when you need them most. It sends your exact location and other practical information used for your rescue.
#Záchranka’s new partner is the Vodafone Foundation here in the Czech Republic. Thanks to this support, you can look forward to lots of useful app updates that can help in an emergency, such as an extended AED database and special functions for deaf users. What’s more, the Windows Phone version and manually selecting your language will both be available from next week.
The Zachranka app has been downloaded more than 200,000 times and was used to contact EMS in more than 1,200 incidents this summer.
You can now activate the alarm function from the smart watch on your wrist. The watch will also display your exact location and altitude.
Karlovy Vary is the latest region to experience the benefits of the Záchranka mobile app. In its first month, the app's functions have been used in more than 12 calls for help made to the emergency services across the Czech Republic.
Cardinal Dominik Duka, the Archbishop of Prague, has blessed the Záchranka app and even has it on his own phone.
