Yes, all distress alerts are relayed to all of the KIPs in the vicinity. This is convenient when the alert is issued in an area without a network since the relay KIPs will automatically transmit the reported alerts as soon as they are back in an area with coverage. The KIPPERS around you can also be notified of your distress, according to the settings they have chosen on their KIP app. By accepting to be notified, they can communicate your alert to 112 and provide assistance without putting themselves in danger.
