Triple Zero (000) locations made easy

Australia’s emergency services have developed a free life-saving app, Emergency+, which helps people call the right emergency number and confirm their location. what3words is now available in this app, and emergency services in Australia accept and use what3words addresses to find Triple Zero (000) callers faster.

What is "what3words"?

what3words in the Emergency+ app is the easiest way to tell Triple Zero (000) exactly where you need help. It has divided the world into 3 meter squares and given each one a unique three word identifier.
