Ramblers do many things from protecting the countryside to promoting active health and helping with all aspects of walking in the countryside from disabled access to maintaining walkways and footpaths.
Ramblers and Alert5 have partnered to provide an additional level of security for our members and their families.
The Alert5 app enables the user to alert up to five friends, family or work colleagues with a map of their exact location, stating they are in need of urgent assistance. It is advised that the user discuss the required alert response with their emergency contacts, ranging from making steps to attend the scene or calling 999 and giving the exact location.
At the touch of a second button an information page is displayed which details information pertinent to the user and an ICE number (In Case of Emergency), which could be 999, which will be called immediately once the button is pressed.
You can download and test the app for FREE by searching for “alert5” on the Apple App Store or GooglePlay Store.
If you continue on and buy the app for £4.99 per year, please enter RAMBLERS for the referral code and the App will then appear as shown in the images below.
As part of the unique service provided to Ramblers you have the ability to receive "push messages" from Ramblers along with the ability to plot "points of interest" on any map that is sent to the alertees.
