Emergency Alert System Using Location Based Identification for Android Text Message Services

V. Lavanya, D. Jayakumar, S. Sivachandrian


Emergency alert system (EMS) people sending text messages android app services for Short Message Service (SMS) is a text based messaging service. Bulk messages cannot be sent during emergencies due to network traffic. Thus a wide range of organizations including colleges and universities now partner with third-party providers that promise to improve physical security by rapidly delivering such messages. Android app design for all services provides only emergency number button click for 1.police 4.medeia 5.Military…and etc. 1. Police click button conformation yes/no type yes means send to message GPS location tracing information for system. The stored for client side the police station system and used to user send the message Police response to the notification for 10 minute delivery to user send message. Nearest police coming any accident solving problem. Emergency Alert System (EAS) using text messages as a security incident response mechanism. These techniques are useful in finding the minimum time for the delivery of all messages. We show emergency alert systems built on text messaging not only can meet the 10 minute delivery requirement mandated. The identification all area hospital list and used ambulance service to check the services.
