In an emergency situation you want to be found quickly, no matter where you are. The latest upgrade to the Triple Zero (000) service improves location information when an emergency call is made from a mobile phone—supplementing location details provided verbally by the caller. Australians can also take advantage of the Emergency+ app, which uses smartphone GPS functionality to help callers verbally advise their location details to emergency services. More information about these services at http://www.acma.gov.au/Industry/Telco/Carriers-and-service-providers/Emergency-call-service/triple-zero-calls-from-mobiles-easier-to-locate
