Excellent App

The first place I head to when adverse weather conditions are raised is to Emergency! Now a First Aid App has been developed which I am sure will be very helpful, even if never used a great benefit to have the information with you at all times.

Great Idea but doesn’t always work

It’s a great idea and in principle very handy. I like the way you can monitor multiple locations at once if you have friends or loved ones living away from you; and the quick link to message them to warn them or check they’re okay is helpful.

The only issue is the notifications don’t always come through; despite having all notification settings in the app and on my device turned on.

Unless you’re in the habit of regularly checking the app, which to be honest is a bit depressing (who wants to live life constantly thinking; “I’d better check if there’s any bad weather warnings”?), you’re going to miss the alerts.

At time of writing the app also needs updating to include the UK’s new Extreme Heat warnings.

Wonderful app

Absolutely wonderful app, keeps you updated with any emergencies happening around you and your family. Only way to make this better if for it to have a companion apple Watch app.
