The fastest way to send help to a distant emergency.
Install 911anywhere to directly call an emergency dispatcher closest to your contacts.
Due to the ongoing threat of abuse of the emergency communications system, the 911 community is making changes to the database of emergency dispatch agencies that 911anywhere uses. During this time, agency lookups within the app, as well as purchases of the app itself, will be unavailable. Abuse of the emergency communications system has consequences! And the unavailability of 911anywhere, a potentially life-saving tool, is a case in point. Please direct any questions to email@example.com.
Save a life. Wherever they are.
In the United States…
Every 90 seconds, someone suffers sudden cardiac arrest who is not already in a hospital.*
Every 40 seconds, someone suffers a stroke.**
It has become much more likely you could witness a relative or colleague in an emergency while on the phone or on a video app. And you may be the only one able to call for help.
The 911anywhere app lets you find, save and directly call an emergency dispatcher in a distant jurisdiction. If you become aware of an emergency in another location--whether on a video conference with a colleague, a video chat with a parent or any other circumstances, you could be someone's only hope...from hundreds of miles away.
Create contacts in the 911anywhere app for the designated emergency dispatch agencies serving your friends, family and colleagues. 911anywhere provides data on the 5,000+ emergency dispatch agencies in the U.S. and automatically updates this data for your contacts in the app if it ever changes.
Dialing 911 connects the caller to a 911 operator for their own local area. But the 911 system is not designed to get help to a distant emergency. That 911 operator cannot simply press a button to transfer a call to any other agency. Save precious time in an emergency by directly calling the right emergency dispatcher from the 911anywhere app.
Please don't assume your local 911 operator can quickly transfer your call...
911anywhere IS how to call this 10-digit number!

911anywhere is for emergency use only when the caller and emergency location are in different 911 Center coverage areas.
To report an emergency at or near your own location, dial 911 by phone.
911anywhere cannot determine the location of a distant emergency. You must provide the emergency’s exact address to the emergency dispatch operator.
If 911anywhere is not working properly in an emergency, dial 911 by phone.
