Peace of mind knowing that if you or a family member are the victim of a medical emergency help is just a call away.

Trauma Assist is a breakthrough in mobile emergency assistance. It is a telephonic panic service that links your cell phone to a 24-hour emergency call centre.

In an emergency, you would press your pre-selected panic number saved on your mobile phone and the Trauma Assist emergency call centre will phone you back and help with your emergency from start to completion.

Our emergency call centre operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and is run by professionally trained and highly experienced crisis managers. Services provided by ER24.

How does it work?
Look out for the SMS you will receive when you join.
