Mobile application

There is a mobile app for 112 created specifically for the deaf. In order to use it, pre-registration and the authorization code provided by the Lithuanian Deaf Association is required.

Using the app, registered users can contact the Emergency Response Centre and ask for emergency help by:

  • a video call;
  • a text chat (messaging);
  • a usual voice call.

A video call allows people with hearing impairment to refer for emergency help in Lithuanian sign language, while the illustrated wizard facilitates communication via a text chat.

Using the Global Navigation Satellite System and other phone sensor location finder functions, the app also locates the person asking for help and transmits his location data to the Emergency Response Centre.

The app works throughout the Republic of Lithuania only and only with a SIM card of the Lithuanian mobile service provider.
