The Company

mySOS was founded in 2013 when a group of like minded entrepreneurs identified the need for a free, independent and all-inclusive smartphone application that could serve as a “one-stop-shop” solution for access to the closest and most appropriate emergency services in South Africa.

South Africa has a unique situation with numerous emergency service providers from both the public and private sector, offering emergency assistance solutions to clients in the medical, rescue, security and roadside assistance industries.
Each geographical location in South Africa, over time, has developed a unique list of emergency assistance providers, including a host of emergency contact numbers. Therefore, making it almost impractical to gain access to a single source of up-to-date, all-inclusive emergency services contact details in our country.

mySOS offers our clients access to appropriate emergency assistance when:

    (a) you don’t know who to call
    (b) you don’t know where you are
    (c) you want to notify your emergency contacts about your emergency and the exact location
    (d) you want your emergency contacts and the emergency services to navigate directly to your location in an emergency
