The BalatonHelp service was created by the Water Rescue Services of Hungary and Volunteer Firefighter Brigade in order to provide a fast, predictable and reliable assistance system on Lake Balaton for watercraft users. BalatonHelp is a unique, professional service on Lake Balaton.
The BalatonHelp system means safety for you and your boat. You can count on immediate professional help 24 hours a day, and if you accidentally get in trouble, any additional damage will not be topped with the costs of remediation.
The pillar of the BalatonHelp system is the BalatonHelp application, through which you can request assistance from our rescue control center at the touch of a button at any time of the day and year. The application has been developed in such a way that by pressing the emergency call button your mobile device sends the exact coordinates and telephone number of your location to the VMSZ center. The rescue protocol then takes effect: a dispatcher calls the number immediately and alerts the crew of the nearest rescue boat. If you do not answer the call, the rescue team will immediately set off on the basis of the received coordinates. If you can be contacted, the center will launch the most appropriate rescue unit on site, assessing the situation. The BalatonHelp application is free for everyone to download and use for free on a smartphone (Android, iOS) in case of an emergency, 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
