Text mountain rescue service

Its possible that not too many are aware of a text rescue service which has more of a chance of requesting assistance when in poor mobile reception areas.

It may also avoid the problem where the emergency operator struggles with your location.

Thank you Carolyn. I registered as soon as I saw this. A good idea about which I knew nothing. Let’s all hope we never need it! All the best, John G4YSS.
