Emergency Beacon is a vital app for all outdoor enthusiasts and anyone who wants a little peace of mind. This app was made as a tool to help rescue teams identify victims of falls, avalanches, natural disasters, or any other emergency incident. Emergency Beacon can emit an audible alarm and send GPS coordinates by email or sms when the iPhone has a cellular data signal. Here are some of the key features:
- The audible alarm can be set to go off every 30, 60, 90, or 120 seconds.
- An unlimited number of email addresses and phone numbers can be pre-programmed to be automatically set in the “To:” field of the email/sms dialog.
- The survival guide features vital information to help you survive an emergency situation and is accessible offline.
Emergency Beacon is a must-have app for your iOS device.
Please note that this app does not have any affiliation with rescue organizations and is owned and updated by a completely outside source. The app's owner, developers, sponsors, and affiliates are in no way liable for the use/misuse of this application or the actions of the rescue team(s) working with the application. This app is made to be an extra tool in emergency situations and should not take the place of other safety measures.
The GPS functionality of the app is dependent on the location functionality of iOS devices. The ability to find coordinates and the accuracy of those coordinates is a function of the device and not Emergency Beacon.
If you have any questions or problems with the app, please let us know via our website. Thanks!
