Sign Video and Sign Language interactions will be launching an app allowing British Sign Language users to connect to an interpreter online to call the emergency services. Called 999BSL, the app is a UK emergency video relay service for Deaf BSL users that allows you to contact emergency services in BSL via a BSL/English interpreter. It is free to use and can be used 24/7. You can contact the police, ambulance, fire and coastguard using the app.
The service will go live on Friday 17th June 2022.
This British Sign Language Video explains more.
More videos in BSL explaining how the app works are available on their website https://999bsl.co.uk/
