February: Emergency? No mobile signal? No problem!

Farmer on phone_275_206If you encounter an emergency at work, by dialling 999 or 112, your mobile will connect to any network, even if your mobile network has no coverage in that area, and even with pay-as-you-go phones that have no credit on them.  Remember, you should keep your phone charged and within easy reach: i.e. in your pocket and not in your vehicle/tractor.  Then, if you are unfortunate enough to have an accident, you will be able to summon help.  If you are working alone, don’t forget to tell someone where you are working, and when you are due back – this simple system helps people work out if you have encountered a problem and potentially saves lives.
