Tongue in cheek post I made in 2007 about an SMS emergency warning service failure.

Good afternoon Graham.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your email requesting information regarding the extension of the SMS Service.

Currently Police are working with a range of other Government Agencies on joint initiatives that will provide a better service to the public of New Zealand. There has been a document developed which is titled ‘Emergency Services Information & Communications Strategy and Roadmap 2013 – 2017’. This sets out the intended pathway for the future in developing a range of initiatives in the Emergency Services area of operations.

One of those initiatives currently being developed is termed ‘Next Generation 111’ [or NG111 for short] and an aspect of that is the development of an emergency ‘app’ that is similar to what you have described.

Unfortunately it is a little early to be able to give any indications as to timeframes for when this may eventuate, but it is certainly in the early stages of planning.

Thank you for taking the time to contact Police and if I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

Inspector Mal Schwartfeger
National Operations Manager: Police Communications Centres

Another option is a monitored alarm. Pressing the panic or medical button prompts the security company to call emergency services after trying to make contact with you.
