Most of us have smartphones now, but what happens when you need to tell someone how to find you?  Sure, you can use Google Maps, but is that specific enough?  Especially if you’re in a large open space (such as out at sea, or even in a big field).  That’s where what3words comes into its own.

Vital for pinpointing your location in an emergency, what3words catapults up all into the 21st century and offers us all the opportunity to improve our chances of being rescued in the event of an emergency.

What3words is a free app for your smartphone, tablet or other devices, and can be downloaded through both the App Store and Play Store.  Help us and the other emergency services to help you by giving your exact location, down to a 3m square.
