Corona virus has continued to wreak havoc in the community which has led to an increased need for information and emergency services. 911 Response24 has launched new functionality and a Free App version to assist with emergencies during the Covid-19 – Coronavirus crisis. The App has been launched amid mounting fake news, and news not relevant to our shores which is being mixed with relevant information. Kerry Hodgkinson, communications manager for 911 Response24 – a service that links users to emergency services using their smartphones – says that during the current crisis the public have increasingly been using incorrect channels such as emergency services for non-life threatening requests, such as for transport to testing Centre’s, or to find the address of their nearest hospital handling the crisis. The 911 Response24 NOC has direct access to official information such as testing centre’s, hospitals and government support centre’s. The app is freely available to download via the Apple and Google Play stores and gives users free access to the new Medical Support SA functionality.
