News - 01 March 2024

In an unknown location and lost? Use ‘What3words’, when it is hard to describe where you are in an emergency, you only need to read out three words given on the app for the call handler to know exactly where to find the incident.

North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) and other emergency services have always advocated the ‘What3words’ app which is available on the App Store and Google Play to download, to help specifically locate any members of the public. This is whether you are in the city, at home, visiting friends or relatives, at the beach or on the hillside. The app helps to better locate an individual faster in an emergency if you are unsure of your exact location potentially saving vital minutes.
