News : Smart24x7 Safety App Now Integrated with Fire Department Service
June 16, 2014 -- Smart24x7, a personal safety mobile application developed by local firm Smart Group, has now been integrated with the country's Fire department service.
The app lets users send the location of the fire mishap with just a tap of a button, and also provides an option to post the picture of the structure under fire, which can help in assessing the severity of the fire, so that the Fire department personnel can come well equipped with the necessary safety gears.
"With the Launch of Smart24x7 Mobile platform we aim to offer an edge to the Fire Department services. With the help of our Application the response time can be reduced dramatically as location gets immediately announced to Fire control room," said CP Singh, Founder, Smart Group.
As of now, the app's fire department service is limited to select cities - Gurgaon Police, Jalandhar Police, Jammu Police, Noida Fire Departmen - but is set to be launched in Kashmir, Lucknow, Bangalore and other major cities to make the system a PAN India service.
Besides the Fire mishap locator, Smart24x7 app can also be used for personal safety. It can be used to communicate to Police or Ambulance during an emergency situation like, facing criminals, or having a medical emergency at desolated places.
Users can just press the panic button to activate the emergency safety system to shoot distress messages to a set of pre-selected contacts, and also to Smart24x7 call center with geography data.
