JRCC Larnaca announces the release of the smart phone application, the CyJRCC SfTrX (SafeTrX) for iOS and Android platforms. The application is an initiative of JRCC Larnaca, aiming to further improve the Search and Rescue system and to reduce the response time of receiving an alert sent by a vessel or person in distress, close to the shore. More specifically, the user will be able to send an emergency call/alert, using the smart phone, directly to the Operations Room of the JRCC, displayed on Google Maps. The alert includes information about the user and the user’s last recorded location. CyJRCC SfTrX is an innovative system and establishes Cyprus as an example in maritime prevention and rescue, with the cooperation and utilization of all the involved governmental and private sector authorities, under the coordination of the JRCC.
