Club Constitution

Emergencies

 

At least one person on a walk should carry a working mobile phone for use in emergencies.

 

If needed you should call 999.

 

If you have a poor signal you can try sending a text (you will need to register first to use this - text 'register' to 999).You need to know where you are - the call handler will not be able to tell.

 

When abroad in EU countries and some others, 112 will get you the local emergency services.112 will also work in the UK but will simply connect you to 999, it offers no advantages over 999.
