SOS WA­TER­WAYS

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
