When started, Rescue Kit displays user’s current location (latitude and longitude) and it can display also map of this location. This is extremely helpful, when calling for emergency help. Exact GPS location is always welcomed by emergency operators and when serious accident happens, it can even save the life. This location can be then sent within a seconds to any phone number using SMS or shared through email or Twitter.
“We’ve created this application after my personal experience with emergency situation”, said Jindrich Sarson, director of TappyTaps. “I drove with with my wife in rural area, when I saw car accident. After calling 911, it was not easy to describe exact place, where we are.” After this experience, TappyTaps designed application, that can help in various emergency situations, so that checking of current location is only one part of this iPhone application.
