In Case of Emergency Call MyDistress

Are you a responsible citizen who takes care of your neighbor and the community. Or do feel that someone in distress needs your help? Most of the time when we see some emergency cases, the best thing to do is to call 999 and your call will be connected to the emergency helpline and will connect to the police, fire department and emergency unit of hospitals. 

However there is a faster way of doing it through your mobile gadget. At a press of your finger tip the police will be alerted and there are two types of alert: personal alert and location alert. 

This app, brought by NKRA Polis Selangor can be downloaded to your mobile phone or tablet. 

I copied this description below from the Google Play website.

One of the key challenges when requesting emergency assistance is communication.
When out in the streets, sometimes you are unsure of the exact location that you are in, which is then difficult for the rescue team to find you quickly.
When in scenario such as kidnap, where you could not speak or communicate your movement, you could not alert the rescue team of your movement for rescue operation.
When in distress, you could be too traumatized to speak or for individuals with hearing or speech impaired, it is a challenge to communicate calmly to the rescue team.
Hence, with MyDistress, you could alert the police department, Polis Diraja Malaysia of your emergency situation with just a click.
Important:
· This application is linked directly to Polis Diraja Malaysia Selangor Contingent.
· Coverage Area – Selangor only.
· MyDistress is a platform where rakyat could notify the Selangor police when assistance is required.
· “Personal Alert” is for outdoor use and it tracks your movement.
· “Preset Location Alert” is for indoor use especially in multi storey buildings.
· By hitting the “HELP” button within “Personal Alert” and “Preset Location Alert”, your request for assistance will alert the Selangor Polis and Polis Personnel will be sent to your location.
· ONLY use MyDistress on cases that are Polis issues.
· MyDistress DO NOT tracks your movement or location if NOT activated
