Saudi Red Crescent launches app to use in emergency

  • The App allows ambulance teams to locate users and provides a list of the nearest health facilities
  • The Aseafni app also supports users with special needs — people with impaired hearing or speech

RIYADH: The Saudi Red Crescent Authority has launched the “Aseafni” application to receive emergency service requests through smartphones in six different languages, reported the Saudi Press Agency.
It is part of its efforts to provide the best emergency services across the Kingdom.
The app allows users to report an incident using a smartphone, call an emergency team, request help by sending a distress signal, and view the report’s status and track it.
It also allows ambulance teams to locate users and provides a list of the nearest health facilities, the emergency numbers of other relief agencies, and the option of logging a person’s medical history.
The Aseafni app also supports users with special needs — people with impaired hearing or speech — by allowing them to send distress signals or request an emergency service without having to make a phone call.
The app users can also send an urgent distress signal in extreme emergencies to the Red Crescent and other emergency contacts (family and friends) through the SMS service. AN Riyadh
