999 emergency SMS

I read in May’s edition of Trail magazine that you can now register with a 999 text service. According to the service, EmergencySMS was not designed for hill walkers – it’s for hearing and speech-impaired people. However the service is recommending everyone register with it.  A text can often go through rather than a phone call in poor reception areas.  Registration takes about 10 minutes to complete.   Sounds like a good idea, I have my Spot Messenger 2 on my walks for emergencies ( a further report on this soon).

The service can be accessed from this link:
