Gemma, Ecologist Surveyor
I work in an area with poor mobile signal, often for very long periods. One incident really sticks out for me. It was the beginning of December and I broke down in a very remote area, with no phone signal, meaning I couldn’t call for help. Thankfully, I had my lone worker device, so all I needed to do was press the panic button which immediately alerted my colleagues that I needed assistance. They arrived at my exact location before the situation became critical.
I don’t like to think how long it would have been before anyone would have found me or even realised I was missing.
