If you need help from Mountain Rescue in an emergency:

Use a mobile phone or get to the nearest landline telephone and dial 999 (or 112 which works just like 999).

Then ask the operator for the Police and tell them you need Mountain Rescue help.

Tell the Police:

If it’s a landline phone then stay near the telephone unless instructed otherwise.

If using a mobile phone you may receive a text message from Mountain Rescue. Follow the instructions on the text - which is simply to click on the link in the text (so make sure your data connection is active before clicking the link). Doing so will give Mountain Rescue your location - you should receive a confirmation message.

If you have hearing or speech difficulties:

In an emergency you can contact the 999 emergency services by text. You will only be able to use this service if you first register your phone, so register now — don’t wait for an emergency! To do so, simply text ‘register’ to 999 then follow the instructions sent.

Then, in an emergency, contact the emergencySMS service by texting 999. Your message should include ‘Police’ + details of incident + location. This is also useful if the phone signal is low and a voice call keeps cutting out – there can be a chance to send a text message.
