Abstract Location of emergency events is one of the crucial aspects during rescue actions. However, there are situations, when people calling for help are not able to provide their precise location (due to e.g. being lost). In the same time, people use mobile phones with advanced capabilities every day. Thus, the idea behind application “Pomoc” (“Help” in Polish) presented in this paper is to make use of already available feature of mobile phones, i.e. GPS (General Positioning System) receiver. Application enables citizens to make emergency call (using European emergency call number 112) and send GPS location to Public Safety Organizations (PSOs), and from the PSOs side – to receive this call and locate it on the map through the desktop part of the application. Application is developed within the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme project SOTERIA: On-line and Mobile Communications for Emergencies (http://soteria.i112.eu/). End users of SOTERIA project are citizens and PSOs.
