A leading provider of personal and business apps for BlackBerry Smartphones has announced that they will provide their personal safety app, Rescue911, for free this holiday season.

The application itself was designed to provide the user a sense of security, being able to immediately notify family, friends or co-workers of their location during an emergency or concerned for their safety. It can also be programmed to instantly dial 911 with the push of a button.

During this busy holiday, people are travelling more, visiting friends and family. They may be out shopping late or having some spirits at a work function. If anyone feels threatened or becomes nervous walking that dark long walk through the parking lot, Rescue911 turns into the panic button on your BlackBerry.

appsFX is providing a free download of their app until December 31, 2010.
