I thought I’d give this a mention. I found out about it as someone told me so passing it on.

For those off grid, or just somewhere less familiar who need to summons help... What Three Words is the world divided into 3m square grid and each square has a unique three word reference. so you call 911 and give them the three words and help its on its way.

Yes it is still dependent on you having cell coverage, or other comms but no use being in a good signal area, calling for assistance but not knowing where you are, about as useless as being able to pinpoint your location by astronomy to a few feet but having no comms...



As a side bonus it‘s a great geography lesson for the kids (or adults) to put in three words and see where in the world you end up!
