This is the app we want all our students to have on their phone and it is available for free at the App Store. The Emergency+ AppThis app has as its home page the numbers required in an emergency. But what makes this app special is that it has the GPS coordinates of where you are calling from, accurate to 50m. It gives the address but also the latitude and longitude. So, your child will always be able to tell the emergency operator exactly where they are.The app also has the numbers of:
