Romania is the 25th country in the world to implement Advanced Mobile Location (AML) for emergencies.

As a few minutes (or even seconds) can sometimes determine the outcomes of an emergency situation, there is no doubt of the importance of accurate location when responding to an emergency call. AML is active in the smartphone operating systems developed by Android and Apple (iOS), it identifies when an emergency call is placed and sends it to the centre attending the call.

This week, Romania has joined the list of countries already deploying the life-saving technology. Find the full list and everything there is to know about Advanced Mobile Location here.

This achievement for public safety is the result of a restructuring looking to improve emergency response in Romania, after the country was under heavy criticism last year.
