The Interior Ministry of North Rhine-Westphalia today announced the launch of the Nora emergency call app for iOS and Android. Under the leadership of the Ministry of the Interior of North Rhine-Westphalia, this processor was developed as a nationwide balanced solution as part of the cooperation between the federal states. The Nora application is the official emergency call application of the federal states. The app provides quick and easy access to police, fire and ambulance services in an emergency. It currently operates in 15 federal states in Germany. Votes are still needed before it can be adopted in Berlin. The application uses your mobile device’s location function to send your exact location to the functional control center in charge. This allows emergency services to easily find you even if you do not know where you are. You can use the app to make emergency calls without speaking. It allows people with speech and hearing impairments to communicate directly with the control centers of the police, fire brigade and rescue services. To make an emergency call with Nora, you must first register, for which you will need a mobile number. You will receive a confirmation code via SMS to this number. Once you have entered your name and confirmation code, you can make emergency calls with Nora. The Nora app requires iOS 12.1 or Android 5.0 or newer and can now be downloaded for free.

What is Nora?
This app is designed to make emergency calls without speaking in emergency and even with small language skills – just like you would call an emergency number 110 or 112. This emergency call via the app contains very important information such as personal data, emergency location and emergency type. Personal data is stored on the smartphone and sent to functional control centers only in the event of an emergency call. Information such as age, gender, previous illnesses and disabilities can be entered on a voluntary basis. Representing all the federal states, the Office for Coordination and Coordination Office of the Ministry of Interior of the North Rhine-Westphalia organizes all matters relating to the use of the emergency call.
Nora for whom?
The Emergency Call Processor can be used by anyone in Germany and in case of an emergency. Nora is especially helpful for people who are unable or unable to make phone calls because they have a speech or hearing impairment. Or they can communicate well on the phone because they do not speak German. Nora is configured with small language skills and the ability to make emergency calls with very important information even without speaking. Icons, clear texts and intuitive user guidance help here.
What are the benefits of using Nora?
Non-speaking emergency call: Nora enables people who cannot call emergency numbers 110 and 112 to make an emergency call. It creates an emergency call app that is the equivalent of voice emergency calls for the deaf and hard of hearing. The application determines the emergency location using your mobile device’s location function and automatically sends it to the responsible function control center. You can use Nora to communicate with the Functional Control Center in a text-based chat. However, if you do not use chat, the control center will send help. Nora can be used in situations where the emergency call is not as noticeable as possible. That’s why there is a “quiet emergency call” function for threatening situations.
