Emergency apps: Join pan-European project

Testing & deploying app interconnection


Emergency apps: Join pan-European project

 

 

 

 

Join the project that will transform the landscape of emergency apps

 

 

 

 

 

Emergency apps are a great asset for citizens as they provide crucial information to rescuers. But an app deployed in country X doesn't work in country Y. In a Europe where people travel more and more (and where tech allows for your fridge to talk to your phone) is this the best we can do?


MEET PEMEA

In April, EENA together with Beta 80 and Deveryware, and with the support of the Developers Alliance, announced the PEMEA Pilot Project. In simple words, the PEMEA (Pan-European Mobile Emergency Application) architecture allows emergency apps to interconnect with each other so that a citizen in danger can use them anywhere in Europe.

PEMEA is not new – it is already a European standard. But for the first time, a project will focus on real world deployments, driving change on the ground. And we want you to be a part of it!

 

THE PLACE TO BE FOR EMERGENCY SERVICES & APP DEVELOPERS

European emergency services that would like to receive information from the PEMEA network, as well as emergency app developers are invited to join the project. How? We’ve made it easy: All you need to do is send an email to Cristina Lumbreras, EENA Technical Director, at cl@eena.org.
