The Parachute App Helps You Stream Emergency Incidents and Crimes

Parachute is one of those great examples of an incident reporting app that can actually save lives.

This app makes it possible for a wide variety of organizations to connect with the Parachute informational apparatus so that they can go about accessing live incidents recorded and shared by users. The app even blacks out your screen so that it's not always apparent that you're recording.

It's always traumatic when some sort of emergency event or crime incident is unfolding in front of your eyes. However, the fact that everyone has a smartphone on them these days allows people to film and stream everything from crime to police brutality or human rights violations. This information can then be routed via the Parachute incident reporting app to concerned authorities who can then take action.
