SHARE YOUR LOCATION WITH THE EMERGENCY CONTACT AND THE RESCUE SERVICES IN CASE OF EMERGENCY

1. 

The user wears DIAL for their sports activity (water or land-based).
Before leaving, they inform one to three reliable relatives or friends: the emergency contacts.

2.

In case of emergency, the alert is triggered:
- either by the DIAL user by pressing on the bracelet for 3 seconds
- or automatically if the user is still for more than 3 minutes (this feature has to be previously enabled on the app, and if the user is on land).

3.

The emergency contacts receive the alert.
To clear any doubt (alert triggered by accident for example), the first available emergency contact reaches the user to confirm their safety. 

4.

If the user does not respond or confirms that they're in danger: The emergency contact can directly contact the rescue services from the DIAL application (connection with the European emergency number 112). Once the emergency contacts reaches the rescue services, they can transmit the GPS location displayed on the application.

Why should you wear DIAL when you go to the sea? 

DIAL is an Individual Alerting and Locating Device adapted to the practice of water sports and activities (coastal boating, water sports, swimming, etc.) in order to:  

Share a precise location 

Water sports enthusiasts are rarely equipped with devices that allow them to communicate their distress situation and share their location in order to be quickly rescued. DIAL allows sharing a precise location to relatives and friends to be rescued promptly.

Easily share a geolocated alert to relatives and friends in case of adversity.

It can be highly difficult for a person in danger at sea to know where they are. Indeed, weather conditions and stress can worsen the ability to locate themselves. 

Also, water sports enthusiast don't carry specific devises like VHF radios, to communicate with the rescue services. 

Furthermore, drift due to currents and winds can be significant, which increases the search time. 

DIAL adapts to all water sports activities 

DIAL has been designed to adapt to all water sports activities. (small boats, sailing dinghies, windsurfing, kitesurfing, stand-up paddle and swimming)
