The County Government and Mountain Rescue Tirol Publish an Emergency App For Smartphones

April 2012: Tirol, Austria:

The Mountain Rescue and the county government Tirol have developed a new smartphone application. Emergencies and accidents can be reported speechless to the coordination center of the Mountain Rescue Tirol. The app therefor sends the GPS position in the moment of the report that can be used immediately by the Mountain Rescue to accelerate the rescue.


The Mountain Rescue Tirol expects a faster care for injured and an easier access of the rescue units because of the quite precise and fast positioning.

The App with the name “Notfall App Bergrettung Tirol” can be purchased for free and is working on Android and Apple OS based smartphones. After the installation of the app you need to provide your name, email address, and phone number.  In case of an accident a touch on the app is sufficient and the provided information and your position (longitude, latitude and altitude) will appear on the screen of an employee of the mountain rescue coordination center that can act immediately.

If an access to mobile internet is not possible, e.g. in a small canyon, the app will send a SMS instead, with all data available.

The developer and the Mountain Rescue Tirol see the app as a big step in modern mountain rescue technique and expect an optimization of the report-, alert- and rescue chain that will cause reduced costs and less equipment for all parties.

All information to the free app is available in the app-stores of Apple and Android with the keywords: Bergrettung Tirol.
