Default Emergency use of mobile phones

Hi all,

If ever you need to call the emergency services then the following will be
worth a watch :-

I dare say most of you know of the procedure in the video clip.

Thanks Bill. I didn't even know about 112, never mind its function.

I have no speakers. (
What does it say?


I ain`t got no speakers, ain`t got no headphones
Ain`t got no records to play.

from Life During Wartime by Talking Heads.

Which also has this line:

Transmit the message, to the receiver, hope for an answer someday.

:-)

The vid says that 112 is the best number from a mobile because it is
prioritised by the mobile networks, is available in the whole of the
EU and many other countries world wide.

When making a call it is best to turn out of the wind so you can be
heard more clearly. However if you don't get through after one minute
turn through 180 degrees in case your head is blocking the mast.

in the UK if you can't get through by voice, a text will go through on
a congested network, of where signal is marginal. You need to register
/beforehand/ by texting REGISTER to 112, you will get a an auto reply
to read to which you reply YES. Your phone is then registered for
texting to 112.
