GHALE: ENABLING APPS FOR EMERGENCY CALLING

GHALE is a platform that routes roaming emergency calls originated from apps into the local PEMEA* network. It connects emergency callers to the public safety answering points (PSAPs) through multi-media services using the internet. It enables users to be easily located in case of an emergency, and people with speaking and hearing diffuclties to communicate with emergency responders using dedicated tools and technologies. Additionally, it allows travelers to reach the closest PSAP when they make an emergency call.

* Pan-European Mobile Emergency Application framework

Limitations of current emergency calls

  • Inaccessible for people with hearing and speaking disabilities or difficulties
  • Language barrier when communicating in different languages with PSAPs
  • Inability to automatically share accurate location with the PSAP
  • Inaccessibility by the most common communication applications
  • Inability to receive pictures of the situation, reducing intervention efficiency

What does GHALE bring?
