My understanding is, that it only needs data access to download the app itself.
If it's already on your phone, all you need is GPS access so it can self-locate.

Many emergency services have now adopted it, and I believe it's nationally adopted in Mongolia, amongst other countries, in their case for the postal service.

Oddly I've just contributed to a thread on a Model Engineering forum on the same subject.

The app also has a voice option in a number of different languages.
