A must have app to help communities fight against crime, become more aware and feel safer.
Imagine being a mum, home with the kids whilst your husband works away. It's 9pm at night and you hear what sounds like someone trying to break in. Whilst you're on hold waiting for the police help centre to answer your call, imagine placing an alert on your location on the map and labeling it "Burglar, Need Help". Several of your local neighbours also have the Local Hero app and get the alert on their phone. A few of your neighbours come outside, turn on their outside lights and head over to your house and start calling out to you. Maybe this is enough to spook the burglar and they take off, fearing they'll be caught.
Your a middle aged, 52 year old. Your wifes currently out for the day and you decide you'll do some gardening. After doing some gardening, you head back inside but you really don't feel well and something isn't right. Your arm starts to feel strange and you feel strong chest pains. You find your mobile phone and dial for an ambulance as you think you're having a heart attack. You've actually become immobile with the pain and your on hold waiting for an ambulance operator to take your call. In the meanwhile, you place a marker on your location through to Local Hero app, label it "Help, Having a Heart Attack". Several of the people in your location have the app and get the alert. A neighbour from up the street drives over to your home and comes to your aid commencing CPR as the ambulance is on its way.
There are hundreds of good and not so good reasons to keep the local community informed about, whether it's a traffic accident, a community concert or even a noisy party. What about a lost dog marking it's last seen location? This app is all about communication when it's needed the most, whilst helping build a stronger more aware neighbourhood.

Very slow app
Used it a few times I guess it needs a few bugs ironed out, slow at loading markers and doesn’t give any info on the marker
Clean and simple UI with a great community purpose
What a great idea for keeping in touch with the local community. Rather than scrolling through the local FB pages to find relevant info you can just be alerted to events close to you.
Once a few users get on board I’m sure this will be very handy.
Community support !
I feel good knowing I am helping my neighbours stay up to date with things happing around in our area. Great app and looking forward to mass usage to help everyone around 🤘
