AA App To The Rescue
11 November 2013:
Stay Safe And Turn Your Phone Into A Panic Button
With the festive season fast approaching and many South Africans preparing to head out on their annual holidays, the Automobile Association of South Africa (AA) has placed road safety in the palm of your hands with the recent launch of its free AA Rescue Service app.
The app creates a seamless and fast channel for assistance in the event of a roadside emergency, turning your smart or feature phone, into a Rescue Me button. The app is available for all, so basically anyone with a cellphone can register for the service.
When you register to download the app, details like the make of your car, colour and registration are requested to make it easier for the rescue team to find you when you need them in a hurry. Once registered and as soon as you press the Rescue Me button on your phone, the AA will receive an instant alert along with your location.
The AA will swiftly call you back to ensure that you are ok and confirm the type of assistance required. The service also allows you to enter emergency contact details in the event that the AA cannot get hold of you. If you drive on South Africa’s roads, you realise the daily dangers that you face. This service will give you peace-of-mind for you or a family member by knowing that help is merely one click away.
