This is an interesting one. The idea is to create a small WiFi mesh network with rather cheap devices dubbed as DUCKS. People can connect to network and access SOS service in a situation when phone lines and internet service don't work.

Project's own website explains this much better than I can, so if you are interested - check it out.

Another video (19mins)

While I was typing this and thinking that these devices could be dropped from a helicopter or just pre-install in houses in flood prone areas - same ideas were said aloud in that video.
