In the US, we have an emergency system that you access by dialing 9-1-1. For smartphones, data (GPS position) and voice are used. I imagine the 9-1-1 service is overwhelmed. Events on this scale will likely overwhelm just about any system.

Uber does this quite well


I can hear on zello boats talking to stranded people over mobile phone
