HALDIMAND—Three words is all it can take to help emergency services find you in the event of an emergency, thanks to a new tool called what3words being launched to fire departments served by the City of St. Catharines fire dispatch.
“When an individual is in distress, time can truly mean the difference between life and death and one of the most important things to assist emergency responders is the exact location. In an emergency it is not always easy and every minute counts,” said St. Catharines Fire Chief Jeff McCormick. “St. Catharines and our dispatch departments are fortunate to have trails, parks, greenspaces, as well as rural expanses, so having innovative technology like what3words will assist first responders in the event of an emergency.”
