    Accidents can happen anytime that is why we have to be careful of what we’re doing, but still we can’t avoid accidents to happen. The most difficult thing in an accident is that when you’re alone. I am so glad I found an application SafeKidZone, it’s a safety management device. Whenever you’re in trouble you can actually press that Panic Button and your exact GPS coordinates will be sent over to their system and they will know where you are. They also got what we call a Safety Profile wherein you can upload your recent picture and any information about you. Whenever there is a real emergency, they can route it over to the nearest 9-1-1 center based on your GPS location. So essentially, responders will take less time in getting there because they know where you are. And of course, they will know what you look like. Check this link:http://www.SafeKidZone.com/
