Emergency-response specialist Skyguard has launched what it says is the first-ever personal emergency service for British travellers and lone workers abroad.
With Skyguard International travellers can summon help at the press of a button if they find themselves in trouble overseas. Initially, the service is live across 34 European countries, the Russian Federation and South Africa.
Skyguard says travellers can activate its emergency international service using a keyfob-sized device called MySOS.
This, says the company, is the smallest GPS alarm of its kind in the UK, and can be discreetly attached to keys, a belt, or worn on a lanyard.
Alarms containing the user’s location and identity go directly to Skyguard’s Incident Management Centre in the UK, where trained controllers can listen in, talk if it’s safe to do so, summon the emergency services of the country in question, and contact the victim’s relatives or employers.
