What3Word Location identifier App

used by the Emergency Services, family or friends to locate you in times of need!

Emergencies can happen anywhere, at any time day or night and often in unfamiliar places. This can make describing your location very difficult if you need to call 999. Having a precise location can help emergency services find you much faster, and the what3words app is a way for you to describe your location, accurate to 3x3m square, using just 3 words. These 3 words can then be shared with and used by emergency services, to find you, or someone else, easily. You can quickly find the words using the what3words free app

Download the what3words app explanation document for more details.

Example: Christchurch front location = bubble.gallons.fled
