Brampton Fire and Emergency Services has partnered with what3words, a free mobile app for iOS and Android that has divided the world into 3m squares, each with a unique 3 word address. The potentially life-saving app works offline, so anyone, anywhere can discover their 3 word address without Wi-Fi or mobile data.

In emergencies such as when someone is lost, or needs support describing exactly where help is needed, use the app to discover the 3 word address, and provide the details to Brampton Fire and Emergency responders. This app will allow Brampton Fire to respond to emergency calls with more precise location identification, enabling quicker dispatch to the incident site, which is crucial in emergencies.
