BEZVESTS.LV, has recently launched a new free feature – the mobile application “SOS Poga" (Alarm Button). A resident of Latvia of any age is welcome to download it and, in case of danger activate and send an SOS signal to relatives and BEZVESTS.LV.

How does it work:

You need to download an app, sign up and designate one of your family member or friend as a confidante.

  • In case of an accident, open the application, hold down the SOS button for three seconds, and both the confidante and Bezvests.lv will receive the alarm.
  • Make sure that your phone an has internet connection.
  • BEZVESTS.LV and your loved ones will receive your geographical coordinates identifying your location, information about the battery level of your phone, and other relevant data that has been previously provided: for example, chronic diseases or allergies that can be life-threatening.

Together with AmCham we can develop our networking not only in the local market with local companies, but also reach out to good partners far away from Latvia.
