SOUTH CA­PE The new RSA Sa­feTrx App mo­ni­tors your bo­at jour­neys and alerts e­mer­gen­cy con­tacts should you fail to re­turn on ti­me. T­his S­martp­ho­ne app for both An­droid and Ap­ple iOS de­vi­ces (iP­ho­ne, iPad) al­lows you to plan your jour­ney on your pho­ne. You can en­ter your jour­ney de­tails and set off kno­wing that should you not re­turn by the ti­me gi­ven, your e­mer­gen­cy con­tact will be a­ler­ted and ad­vi­sed to i­ni­ti­a­te ap­pro­pri­a­te acti­on. W­he­re an e­mer­gen­cy con­tact calls the MRCC con­cer­ning an o­ver­due trip, they will ha­ve access to your lo­ca­ti­on and Sa­feTrx Trip da­ta through a se­cu­re Sa­feTrx ser­ver. Sin­ce the app pe­ri­o­di­cal­ly sends your lo­ca­ti­on da­ta back to our ser­vers, the NSRI’s re­spon­se te­am can get help di­rect­ly to you, and quick­ly. The Sa­feTrx sup­port e­mail ad­dress is nsri@sa­fe­trx­

E­mer­gen­cy Con­tacts

The in­for­ma­ti­on and functi­ons pro­vi­ded in t­his ap­pli­ca­ti­on are pro­vi­ded on the un­der­stan­ding that u­sers exe­r­ci­se their own skill and ca­re with re­spect to their use. Sa­fe­ty at sea is a se­ri­ous con­si­de­ra­ti­on. In e­mer­gen­cy ci­r­cum­stan­ces, you should not re­ly so­le­ly on the in­for­ma­ti­on and functi­ons pro­vi­ded in t­his ap­pli­ca­ti­on, but seek in­for­ma­ti­on and as­sis­tan­ce from as ma­ny sour­ces as pos­si­ble. T­his ap­pli­ca­ti­on may pro­vi­de you with in­for­ma­ti­on and as­sis­tan­ce re­le­vant to your cur­rent lo­ca­ti­ons, as de­ter­mi­ned by the mo­bi­le de­vi­ce that you are u­sing. Ho­we­ver, the de­vi­ces and the te­le­com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons sy­s­tems that sup­port them are in­he­rent­ly un­re­li­a­ble and the­re is a risk that the­re will be no con­necti­vi­ty be­t­ween your mo­bi­le de­vi­ce and glo­bal po­si­ti­o­ning sy­s­tems. Un­in­ter­rup­ted con­necti­vi­ty be­t­ween your mo­bi­le de­vi­ce and glo­bal po­si­ti­o­ning sy­s­tems can­not be gua­ran­teed. Ask a que­s­ti­on, share an i­dea or re­port a pro­blem by sen­ding an e­mail to sa­fetrx@se­a­res­cue.
