Emergency response

22:01, Dec 16 2012


Emergency services urge everyone holidaying away from home this Christmas to take note of your surroundings at all times.

In the event of having to make an emergency call, precious seconds can be lost if you are unsure of your location.

If you have to make a 111 call and can't give an exact address, then use landmarks such as a church, library, cinema, park, bridge or a geographical feature such as a river.

With good detail from you, emergency services mapping technology can pinpoint exactly where you are, and respond quickly.
