App of the month
FREE ON THE APP STORE AND GOOGLE PLAY River Canal Rescue has added testing, request advice and photo reporting functions to its free SOS Waterways app.
In a bid to reduce the number of boaters accidentally asking RCR for emergency assistance, the app now has test connection and request advice buttons. Between October 2017 and July this year, RCR responded 24/7 to 255 emergency assistance requests, yet only 10 percent were urgent or for breakdown support.
The test button gives peace of mind the system’s working and request advice can only be activated during office hours. Users can now send a photo to report an issue that needs dealing with, such as a breach, an incident or breakdown. Download the app from Google Play, the App Store or www.rivercanalrescue.co.uk
