Emergency text system
Often in the mountains or in the more remote areas of the Lake District you may not get a good mobile phone signal. Often a weak signal is not enough for voice calls but holding the phone above your head for example may be sufficient to be able to send a SMS text message.
Providing you register your mobile phone number first you can send emergency text messages to 999.
