What3Words Campaign – Vale Coastal Area

PCSO Rhiannon Cummings has been in touch to share the news of a what3words campaign launched in partnership with the VOG Council Glamorgan Heritage Coast Team, NHS, National Coast Watch Institiute & Coast Guard, RNLI and community partners to assist walkers and families out enjoying the Vale coastline.

what3words is a three-word address system used in 170 countries globally and by UK emergency services, including South Wales Police and will enable our local emergency services to find lost walkers, casualties, missing people, or those in distress by using a precise location attached to markers along the Vale coast. If someone provides the what3words address when reporting an incident, emergency services can more easily identify their exact location.

Thanks to partnership work, markers are now attached to 25 wooden posts between Ogmore-by-Sea and Monk Nash. The project also has the support of local resident and ITV Wales television presenter Ruth Dodsworth. To read the press article, click here.

Please share this email and information and help us grow the network.
