The OPP is using the internationally recognized app what3words in all provincial call centres to direct first responders to precise locations for faster and more accurate emergency response. what3words has assigned a unique three-word tag to every three squared metres on the planet. By giving the 911 dispatcher the three words for your location, they can convert the tag into proper coordinates, pinpoint exactly where you are, and direct help. This tool is proving particularly useful in helping OPP officers locate parties in remote and forested areas where signal is limited and on vast waterways.The GBA highly recommends that members download this app. We suggest: - Downloading the app and take a little time to familiarize yourself with it. It is free and easy to use. - Get the three words for your dock and memorize them. - If there is an emergency when you are out and about, the app will let you know the three words for your current location. - In an emergency, dial 911 and give them the three words for your location.
