Today, we made sure that we all have the Iceland 112 App, downloaded onto all our mobile phones and devices, and that we all know how to use it appropriately.
The 112 Iceland App can be used for two things, both for added safety on your Iceland trip.
This app is both in English and Icelandic.
It is the official App for Iceland Emergency Services 112.
The App sends an SMS to the Icelandic Emergency Service 112, with the phones GPS location, before calling 112.
Red Emergency Button
First of all you can call for help by pressing the Red Emergency Button.
Your location will be sent by SMS text message to the 112 response centre.
Remember that even though your phone shows no signal, there is a possibility that you can send SMS text message.
Green Check-In Button
The Green Check-In button is for you to leave your location with us, so if something happens we have more information to worked with.
Only the 5 last locations are stored and we recommend you use this – don’t worry – you are not disturbing anyone – except for our big computer who wants to be disturbed.
