112 Iceland App

The 112 Iceland app makes it possible to contact 112 without calling. Clear simple app menu assists users in explaining what is happening and send a text message to an emergency operator. As soon as the app contacts the emergency operator your location is sent to the emergency center, along with the personal information stored in the app and a description of what is going on. This makes it possible to respond even more quickly to your call.

The app is based on a design for hearing impaired persons who use sign language, in Icelandic called "döff people", but has shown itself to be useful for anyone who might have difficulty calling for help or in describing the situation in a call.

Emergency operators

Emergency Operators are on call 24/7. At the guard post in Skógarhlíð, there is room for eight operators, but the number of operators on duty depends on the estimated load.
