HM Coastguard Lytham, HM Coastguard Fleetwood. the Police, the Fire and Ambulance Service were yesterday all involved in the rescue of a male who had lost his balance and become stuck in the mud on the river bank in the Freckleton area. Lytham St. Anne’s News has earlier today reported on this successful rescue.
The emergency services were successful in locating and rescuing the male due to his use of the ‘What 3 Words’ app. This app is easy to use and should you become lost or need emergency assistance, the app will provide you with 3 different words for your exact location which you can then provide to emergency services or anyone else who has the app. In response to this local incident, emergency services would have struggled to locate the male if they had not received the 3 words from the app.
Emergency services now want to ask everyone to consider downloading this app. Information on the app can be found on the following link and it is free to download on smart phones. http://orlo.uk/s2vj5
