Just over 80% of emergency services in the UK now use what3words. You now have an opportunity to download the what3words app on their phones in case you need to call 999.

You can find a full list of those services that accept what3words here: https://what3words.com/news/emergency/three-words-for-a-faster-emergency-response. Your community could also use what3words to report incidents with organisations like National Grid, Network Rail and the Environmental Agency: https://what3words.com/report-incident-locations-efficiently.

The app is totally free to download and use, you can download it on iOS or Android here. I’ve attached a PDF here with some images and videos you could use for a social post or newsletter if interested!
