The world's first emergency medical response app, MUrgency, is offering safety features for women in distress apart from addressing medical emergency issues.The new features include three useful free services to help women seek help during emergency situations.The first feature, 'Virtual Body Guard,' is designed for individuals who are traveling alone, visiting an unfamiliar location or meeting up with someone new. This feature will share the geo location with friends and family and offer help if needed. Users can also upload photos of the vehicle and the driver.The second feature, 'ShoutOut' communicates to other MUrgency Users, who are within a radius of 500 meters to 50 kilometers. This feature will help women stranded on highways, lost in foreign cities or looking for a lost child by shouting out to nearby MUrgency Users. Women can change the range of reach of their message as per need.The third feature, the 'Nearby' service can locate nearby emergency facilities like police stations.As per Sweta Mangal, Director
