Imagine you are on holiday abroad. You have been looking forward to it, made plans and saved money. Suddenly you receive a message on your phone; a storm is on the way. This was probably not what you had planned, but with an alert, at least you have the chance to be prepared. 


The app offers added functionality and safety to the 706,000 members of Norwegian Air Ambulance when traveling abroad. The project was completed on time and was re-launched with a new design in the summer of 2015. The app is available both in Google Play and AppStore.

Free SMS alerts and medical assistance

SMS-alerts when you are abroad is a service for Norwegian Air Ambulance members. You can enter an alert from a relevant country in a given period, and you will receive an SMS about natural disasters, disease outbreaks, and other important incidents in the country. 

Immediate access to important phone numbers

The app also contains a large directory of all medical emergency phone numbers in countries all over the world. Access to this information is free for everyone who downloads the app, member or not. In the app you can easily select the country you are traveling to. The app shows medical emergency phone numbers in the selected country, as well as the phone number to the nearest Norwegian embassy or consulate.

If an accident or a disease strikes when you are traveling, anywhere in the world, "Hjelp Utland" provides easy access to medical emergency numbers in the area where you are traveling.
