From Monday 25th July – Sunday 31st August, North Wales Fire and Rescue Service will be taking part in the #KnowExactlyWhere summer safety campaign to raise awareness of the free what3words app and how it can be effectively utilised in an emergency.
what3words has divided the world into a grid of 3 metre squares, and given each square a unique identifier made of three random words – a what3words address.
The app is free to download for both iOS and Android and works offline – making it ideal for use in areas of the UK with an unreliable data connection, such as beaches, national parks and campsites – which are incredibly popular during the summer months. what3words can also be used via the online map at what3words.com. The app is available in 51 languages, including Welsh, and can be used anywhere in the world.
