App to provide help and assistance
Waterways SOS from River Canal Rescue (RCR) is a new app that provides you with a fast and easy way to get help and assistance when you need it, from breakdowns to emergencies or even just requests for advice. Just one click of the SOS button will alert us and we will contact you to confirm your situation.
The app utilises your phone’s location services to share your GPS co-ordinates and what 3 words location with our offices allowing us to locate you wherever you might find yourselves. The app also utilises data signal as opposed to network coverage which increases the likelihood that you can contact help when you need it. If for whatever reason you are in need of emergency response, we can forward this directly to the relevant authorities, increasing their ability to locate you quickly.
