Which emergency service please? – Where are you? How can I help you?


Save time, Save a life…Northumbria Police encourage you to download the free what3words app for your IOS or Android phone, today.

Many UK national and international emergency services are using what3words : Police, Fire and Rescue, Ambulance, Coast Guard, Mountain Search and Rescue.

When it is difficult to describe where you are in an emergency, you only need to read 3 words for the 999 emergency service to know exactly where to find you or the incident.

what3words has divided the globe into 3m squares and given each a unique 3 word address.

The addresses are accurate to 3m x 3m, easier to say over the phone or radio than GPS coordinates.

Its is easy to share a what3words address with 1 click into a messaging app or say over the phone to a call handler.

When the emergency service receive the what3words from a caller, the emergency service responders can route to the exact location where help is needed.

What3words works offline; ideal for areas which have unreliable data connection.

Without phone signal, the app functions the same as when you have no data connection: you can still view the location of any what3words address you enter. You can also navigate to it using compass mode.

To share a what3words address over the phone or in a text message you need phone signal. To load maps, or share in other apps or social media, you need a data connection.

DESIGN A ROYAL COACH FOR THE FETE

Posted on Updated on

Every Royal Occasion needs a Royal Coach, so we thought it would be fun to get everyone designing and building one, for the fete on Saturday. After a grand parade, we’ll chose a winner to lead the ceremonies!
Simple rules:
  • Must have at least one wheel!
  • Must be patriotic and regal!
  • Must carry a family member in the parade [does not matter how many legs!]
Bring your entry to the Fete to be judged.
