Panic button with 24/7 assistance

AfriForum 911

What is the AfriForum 911 Emergency Button app?

The AfriForum 911 Emergency Button app is an emergency app that you can download to your smartphone, turning it into an emergency button. The app connects you directly to any of the applicable service provider across South Africa. These service providers can quickly access your information via the app so that the applicable care can be given to you and your family.

AfriForum offers the following in cooperation with Response 24:

  • Armed response and medical emergency response services at the push of a button
  • Exact GPS location identification from where the call for help is coming – accuracy up to 5 metres
  • Direct alerts to reduce communication barriers
  • Faster response times with live updates of responders

What free benefits does the AfriForum 911 Emergency Button app offer you?


You can send one armed response alert per month and one medical emergency response alert* per month for yourself (as AfriForum member) or one of maximum of five dependants (direct family) as a shared benefit by simply clicking the AfriForum 911 Emergency Button app’s emergency button – free of charge!


You can see in real time where your family members are on the central map home screen of your smartphone so that you know they are safe. Your family members must also download the App and register on it, otherwise they will not be visible on the map.


You can trigger a reverse panic on behalf of any registered 911 family member or friend to send for armed or medical response, or to navigate to them.

You can communicate via the app to support your family while help is on the way. Please note that you must have data available.

You will receive push notifications (even when you have closed the app).

You can trigger unlimited family and friend alerts so that they can come to your aid.


You can create permission-based groups of loved ones.


You can create geo-fences around specific locations to keep updated on your family’s movements in and out of these areas.

You can chat via the app to our tech team to assist you with app queries. Please note that you must have data available.
