Educational Institutes in Faisalabad to Get Free Panic Alert App

panic alert app

In light of the terrorist attack in Peshawar, schools and other educational institutes in Faisalabad will be getting a Rescue 15 Panic Alert Android Application.

The app has been developed by Safe City Project, Pakistan Team for the quick and rapid mobilization of police in case of emergency.

The app isn’t available on Google Play; instead, it will be manually installed on smartphones via a request by the learning institute administration. Upon pressing the panic button, the app will send an alert to 7 different locations and police forces will be mobilized accordingly.

To get the app for your institute, administrators should go the Faisalabad police website and download panic switch forms 1 and 2.  Alternatively, the Rescue 15 Faisalabad division can be contacted to get the forms. The completed forms and the Android smartphones on which the app should be installed should be brought to Rescue 15 City Faisalabad.

The service is already live in Faisalabad and will be launched in Peshawar, Rawalpindi and Islamabad soon.

    An app? Really!? A simple physical panic button (like in banks) would’ve done the job a whole lot better. But I guess there has to be an app for everything. Coming up next due to popular demand: Inqilab Reloaded – Virtual Dharna.

    Side note: Whoever designed/developed this app, I believe they haven’t heard of user experience. If there’s ever a need to press that panic button (God forbid there ever is), the person pressing it might need to do it discreetly and out of sight, (the screen may or may not be visible to the person) Why on earth would you place the “I am safe now” button so close to the panic button?

      No need internet.

  • a good thought, however if it shouldnt be mis used

      Only registered person allowed

    Rather there would have been a fast dial number, where any one could call free of cost. Like 15-41-1 where 15 is 15 number, 41 is the city code and 1 may be unique identifier.

    What if there is emergency and there is no internet coverage??

      If internet not available used second option GSM.

    The app looks like a 1990 game.

      That’s not DOS base :). That’s android
