Films, Intruders, Slippery - Save time in an emergency, save a life

You never know when you are going to have to summon help - and postcodes just aren't accurate enough to direct emergency services to an exact location.

With this in mind, a UK company, what3words, have developed an app that divides the globe into 57 trillion 3 metre squares. Each square has a uniquer identity made up of three random words, and Films, Intruders, Slippery, is the square of the waterside centre entrance.

If you are lost and call the emergency services they may ask you to download the app and tell them your location in three words.

The system is used throughout the UK by 35 emergency services, including Suffolk use what3words. You can download the app for free for Android and Apple devices.
