EENA's work on emergency apps

Overview of EENA's work on emergency apps



EENA strongly believes that all apps connecting citizens with the emergency services have to fully work everywhere in the EU. To achieve this, these apps should be interconnected in a standardized way.



Imagine if emergency apps didn't just work within a small geographical territory but everywhere in Europe. That's what PEMEA is about. EENA is working towards the implementation of a Pan-European Mobile Emergency Apps (PEMEA) strategy and provides regular updates via documentation on our work (see below).



EENA, together with Beta 80, Deveryware and the Developers Alliance, launched a pan-European call for applications from countries and emergency apps who want to make public safety history.

The PEMEA project was officially launched on 11 September 2018 in Madrid, Spain. The project will see real-world deployments of the PEMEA architecture in countries and regions around Europe.
