Task 5: Information Systems

Option 2: Find a app or a website that takes raw data and presents users with meaningful information. What data does the service collect? How does it present the information to users and why is it important?

Emergency + App is a brilliant App that can help save lives

Introduced to me at my latest First Aid course, I was profoundly excited by the set up of this app.  It’s initial Triple Zero connection, but the use of real data to provide location and other access to emergency services.  A neat, easy to use app that will definitely ease your emergency situation all the info for the Australian community to aid in saving lives.

App Info:

Save the app that could save your life. Emergency +

‘Emergency +’ is a national app developed by Australia’s emergency services and their Government and industry partners, helping people to call the right number at the right time, anywhere in Australia. The app uses a mobile phone’s GPS functionality so callers can provide emergency call-takers with their location information as determined by their smart phone. ‘Emergency+’ also includes SES and Police Assistance Line numbers as options, so non-emergency calls are made to the most appropriate number.

When calling Triple Zero (000), remember to stay focused, stay relevant, and stay on the line. Before you call, ask yourself:
* Is someone seriously injured or in need of urgent medical help?

* Is your life or property being threatened?

* Have you just witnessed a serious accident or crime?

If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of these questions, call Triple Zero (000). Triple Zero calls are free.
