Airtel launches ‘Emergency Alert Service’

Airtel has introduced a new value added service ‘Emergency Alert Service’ for its mobile customers. With this service customers can alert and  inform their near and dear ones in the times of emergency. This service will allow  mobile users to send an alert with their geographic location to  10 family/friends  simultaneously with just a call, facilitating an access to easy and quick help. Airtel users can even send a ‘SAFE’ SMS indication to a pre-defined group of 10 family members and friends and keep them informed of their well-being especially when out alone and during any natural calamity or disaster with just one click. Such services can be very helpful during emergency situations like tsunami, terror attack, earthquake, cyclone or disasters like fire & accidents.
