The new Wales Coast Path creates a need for joined up communications, to ensure safety, provide informations on locations for assistance and social interaction. There are certain risks to the public associated with sending more people around a Wales Coast Path and these need to be addressed. A smart phone App (with an associated website as an alternative way of accessing the data) will provide a real-time solution with added possibilities such as offering first aid support from a volunteer network of first aiders or help guide them to the nearest located medical support centre.
