How To Use The iER App To Stay Safe
Disasters and medical emergencies occur when you least expect them. It’s always essential to have immediate access to emergency response services. The iER App is South Africa’s leading response services provider, giving you access to thousands of emergency service providers nationwide.
We ensure that users have fast access to emergency services when you need it. Most importantly, you can report cases in real time and receive prompt updates. Read on to find out how to use the iER App to stay safe.
Why Do You Need an Emergency Response Service App?
Nowadays, your smartphone has become an invaluable, indispensable asset. An emergency response service app combines easy accessibility to services with the convenience of having these services by your side, constantly. For instance, you can place the iER widget on your mobile phone’s home screen to maximise availability during a stressful situation.
Peace of mind during a crisis is immeasurable. Most importantly, it would help if you had immediate, responsive assistance to emergency care, helping you to effectively navigate the incident. The last thing you should be concerned about is how to contact help when you or your loved ones face an emergency.
Safety for Everyone
The iER App is easy to use and available for anyone within the border of South Africa, including tourists and visitors. Downloading the app offers peace of mind knowing that you are equipped with assistance for any life-threatening situation.
All-in-one Emergency Services
The iER App relies on a robust network of service providers who are readily available when you send an alert. You can use the silent alert function or send an SOS with the panic button widget. The app has integrated innovative software that enables precise GPS location for seamless service dispatching, directly to your location, wherever you are in the country.
It’s a Free Service
The iER mobile app is FREE to download and uses minimal data to send an alert as well as track your immediate location. There are no in-app purchases or adverts to distract from the service’s main purpose, to save lives!
How Can You Download the iER App?
Go to the app store on your smartphone (available on the Google Play Store, Apple App Store, or Huawei App Gallery). Search for “Integrated Emergency Response” and select download or install.
Once the download is complete, you can open the app, which will prompt you to enter your mobile number. A One-Time-Pin (OTP) will be sent to you, and once correctly entered, you will need to accept the Terms and Conditions of the app.
You will need to enter your details and those of your emergency contacts. Your details include information about medical cover, allergies, and relevant health data. Once completed, you can access the iER App landing page and emergency alert icons.
Now that you have your mobile app, you can send a test to ensure it functions properly on your smartphone. A test alert will mimic a real-life situation. A case report number will be sent to you on the iER App, and a response agent will contact you immediately.
When faced with an emergency, click the relevant alert icon or use the panic button widget. A case number will be generated and sent to you, and the control centre will have access to your GPS location. Please note that your location is only sent to our response centre once you have sent an alert. iER does not continuously track your location. You can use the in-app chat function to send updates using images, text messages, or voice notes.
In summary, every individual can have access to a convenient and easy-to-use service that provides efficient access to various emergency response teams. The iER App ensures that you have appropriate help when you need it most. With a network of over 14,000 emergency medical and non-medical services, help is just a tap away. iER – Saving Lives
