what3words is now used by 80% of the emergency services in the UK and has helped to locate nearly 4,000 incidents since it first started being used.

Their system has given every 3m square in the world a unique identifier made of 3 words - making the location of an emergency or incident very easy to describe and share.

For example: ///tortoises.swarm.announce will take you to a precise location on Ben Nevis where in February 2020, a group of hikers were rescued.

Make sure you download the free app in advance to be prepared.
