The service, accessible via the OTR app or on the phone, offers a single point of contact for all emergencies such as road rage situations, stalking, eve-teasing, physical threat, being stranded on the road late at night, being caught in a minor or major accident, fire or a medical situation, be it at home or on the road.

The FRT’s will then remain with the user till the emergency is closed. Further, depending on the nature of the emergency, OTR coordinates with external agencies such as the police, ambulance, medical services, fire, cab services, mechanics etc. on behalf of the user. The FRT’s are trained to administer first aid, break up an assault, handle small fires and provide the subscriber a sense of mental peace.
