EENA's work on emergency apps
Overview of EENA's work on emergency apps
IN A NUTSHELL
EENA strongly believes that all apps connecting citizens with the emergency services have to fully work everywhere in the EU. To achieve this, these apps should be interconnected in a standardized way.
Imagine if emergency apps didn't just work within a small geographical territory but everywhere in Europe. That's what PEMEA is about. EENA is working towards the implementation of a Pan-European Mobile Emergency Apps (PEMEA) strategy and provides regular updates via documentation on our work (see below).
Already 21 emergency apps have committed to be compliant with PEMEA,
getting us one step closer to it becoming a reality for Europeans!
PEMEA PROGRAMME BECOMES A REALITY - APPLY TO JOIN US
April 2018 brought an exciting announcement: the launch of a project to kick-start the deployment of the PEMEA architecture! EENA, together with Beta 80, Deveryware and the Developers Alliance, is now accepting applications from countries and emergency apps who want to make public safety history. Will you miss it?
EENA GROUP ON APPS
The EENA Group on Apps was launched on 23/01/2017, for stakeholders in the field of emergency mobile applications! The aim is to bridge communication and share expertise with professionals from around the world!

|112 Apps strategy||The goal of this document is to describe the strategic objectives that underlie the implementation of a Pan-European Mobile Emergency Apps (PEMEA) and propose a realistic plan to achieve this task with minimal delay.||Read the document|
|PEMEA Requirements & Functional Architecture||The scope of this document is to describe the functional requirements, recommend a common architecture and establish a minimum set of data to be sent by 112 smart-phones apps to the most appropriate PSAP in case of emergency. Furthermore, this document outlines some of the already available apps for emergency services in Europe.||Read the document|
Protocol & Procedures Specification
|The document defines the protocols, information elements, rules and procedures necessary to implement the PEMEA architecture and requirements specification. It provides the XML schema implementing the message flows as well specifying the transport protocol, associated security measures and, where necessary, explicit procedures for functional entities to perform.||Read the document|
|The purpose of this document is to provide all stakeholders (application providers, PSAPs service providers, PSAPs and aggregating service providers) the necessary operational procedures and guidelines for using the PEMEA framework.||Read the document|
